Opis: Greek Lives From Plutarch (Classic Reprint) - Byles C. E.

Excerpt from Greek Lives From Plutarch
This translation is intended to be used as an English reading-book in schools. For various reasons, the existing standard translations of Plutarch are not very suitable for school use. The language of North, excellent as it is for students of literature, is too difficult for boys and girls. The translation known as Dryden's, and that by the brothers Langhome, are somewhat ponderous, and written in a style which we should not nowadays wish our children to acquire. Moreover, there is a good deal in Plutarch which, for school purposes, lends itself admirably to omission. Then again, his rambling digressions often mar the directness of his narrative. Young readers who will delight in his descriptions and anecdotes are not interested in abstract discussions of moral or political questions, while, on the other hand, as Tennyson says,
"Truth embodied in a tale
May enter in at lowly doors."
Hence each of the lives here given has been considerably abridged. This process can be more easily done in the course of an entirely new translation, than by merely cutting out passages from an old one.
In making' my version I have used a Teubner text. My primary objec has been to render Plutarch into readable English, such as a boy or girl can understand. In order to bridge over a gap and preserve continuity, I have here and there made a slight use of paraphrase.
