Emily Wilson is the first woman to translate the Odyssey into English, giving Homer's epic a "radically contemporary voice" according to the New York Times Magazine. In this Humanities without Borders lecture, Wilson talks about her approach and reflects on the practice and theory of translation.

Presented in partnership with Wisconsin Book Festival.

Wilson is a Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania
