Abstract

Translation is the connection of the meaning of a source-language text by means of an equivalent target-language text. All poetical translations from the ancient classical languages are difiicult because the ‘tools of the translation’ for reading such texts usually are bound up with the using of a dictionary, knowledge the inflection and syntax, creating a set of commentaries and cetera. Actually, this is necessary for being able to read the language because the Geeek and Latin sentence are constructed upon a plan entirely different from that of the sentence in modern languages. In this article we will focus on thematically-linked reading of the poetry of Greek and Latin authors from different periods in order to have encountered the classical world through the translations techniques and to gain knowledge how poetry was read, interpreted, and perceived in the antiquity. In that line, we aspire to attain a deeper understanding about the languages in which these works were composed and contribute to a discourse of poetics.
