This conversation is with Robin Waterfield, Stoic translator.

Robin has just released a new translation of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations and has translation of Epictetus’ Discourse forthcoming.

We discuss the art of translating, balancing faithfulness to the text with the authors voice, and some of the difficulties that he encountered trying to translate the Stoics.

This conversation will be of interest to those who want to know more about the process that goes into creating the translations we read of our favourite Stoics.
