The translation:
This is a great translation. Bywater (and Murray in the introduction) have made an effort to create a readable version of the poetics. One of the great problems with poetics is the translation of terms like mimesis and poetry which have no equivalent in modern languages. Bywater manages to find some by a powerful and synthetic contextualization.

Murray complements this in the introduction - E.G.: he explains how the use recreation of old myths in new froms can be understood as an imitation of those myths - meaning the fictional imitation of a fact.

This is version prior to 1930 - so that study should be accompanied by a later version too. An older archeological document was discovered in the 30's that has changed posterior translations.

Problems:
I am reviewing now a book that I bought a few months ago - so it might be that the problems I am talking about have already been solved. In my version (the kindle) there are navigation problems. It jumps from first to last page when you use the 'next page button'. So that navigation has to be introduced via location search.

Good book. Language is accessible, and it's a great quick reference for some otherwise complicated ideas -- I love kindle products for that reason.

Poetry has changed in many ways but, its roots are grounded in these rules and, truly poetry speaks to each soul differently as does any art form.

The title says it all. This was well-translated and made it easy to follow Aristotle's lines of reasoning without distorting or skewing his original meanings. I appreciated this.

I purchased this because Aristotle wrote it. I did not expect it to be so eloquent, having never read his works. I was curious and very happy with my choice!
