Stanley Lombardo

Fecha de nacimiento: 1943

Stanley F. "Stan" Lombardo is an American Classicist, and former professor of Classics at the University of Kansas.

He is best known for his translations of the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid . The style of his translations is a more vernacular one, emphasizing conversational English rather than the formal tone of some older American English translations of classical verse. Lombardo designs his translations to be performed orally, as they were in ancient Greece. He also performs the poems, and has recorded them as audio books. In performance he also likes to play the drums, much like Ezra Pound. Wikipedia
