Знаменитый труд (оставшийся незаконченным) известнейшего древнегреческого историка Геродота в русских изданиях условно называется «Историей». В иностранных издания он носит разные названия «Музы Геродота», «Истории Геродота», «Геродот» и наконец в нашем случае «Персидские войны». Это произошло, поскольку в рукописях содержащих труд Геродота нет заглавия, относящегося ко всему сочинению.

Example text

In the case of German, translation was inevitable since French was not an intelligible option; the opacity of post-Conquest English was clearly mitigated by the existence of AngloNorman. There was no need to develop a set of terms in England where the court language and the official language of culture was French. However, the etymological situation too is more complicated than Lacan’s account suggests. C. Stephen Jaeger, in his vital but underrecognized study The Origins of Courtliness,33 shows that the lexical relations between European languages in the Middle Ages were not totally straightforward.

But what is equally remarkable is how fully and easily the poems have replicated the notoriously intricate forms of the troubadours. ”32 More importantly for the discussion of courtly love though, the poems have also fully internalized the terminology of the great European love-poets of 1200. I say “internalized” because that terminology occurs with admirable ease side-by-side with diction and forms from Old English. It is not putting it too strongly to say that, in many cases, that terminology is translated in the same way that the thirteenth-century German, French, and Italian poets translated the terminology of Provençal.
