Why does Michelangelo’s sculpture of Moses depict him with horns? Why do we think the Garden of Eden’s forbidden fruit was an apple? The answers lie in failures of translation.
Renowned translator Mark Polizzotti of the Met Museum discusses those failures and much more in his latest book, Sympathy for the Traitor, a lucid and even humorous translation manifesto.
