Translating Exile: Challenges and Strategies in Rendering Ovid's Tristia Into Mandarin.

Ovid's exile poetry is permeated with intricacies and subtleties that defy monolithic or conclusive reading, which presents a fundamental challenge to translating it into any language. This talk focuses on the technicalities and strategies of translating Ovid's exile poems, especially Tristia (‘Lamentations’), into Mandarin.
