"An extraordinary scholarly book," which was "to say the least, ahead of its time." -- Daniel Weissbort (commenting on Amos' monograph in his foreword to Douglas Robinson's Western Translation Theory from Herodotus to Nietzsche).
Amos' classic work traces the long evolution of translation theory. In four engaging chapters, Professor Amos lucidly presents theories from the medieval period through Alexander Pope, and also addresses Bible translation and the Elizabethan period. An important work of scholarship still today.
