Abstract and Keywords

The decision to study Greece, to find it important, is on every occasion a decision to express oneself in a certain way. This is something illustrated by one activity which is so central to Hellenic studies that it can seem commonplace: translation. As this article notes, to see the need for translation is to recognize difference and distance, but at the same time to seek a means of making Greek culture our own. Translation approaches Greek rhetoric by mediating its survival in the shape of tradition and memory.

Keywords: Hellenic studies, translation, Greek culture, Greek rhetoric
