That’s right. The Italians have an old saying that goes “traduttore, traditore.” I can’t quite agree, however. It assumes that you can’t transmit a work from one culture to another. You can, of course. It’s just that you can’t transmit one culture to another. But who would want to? Why would anybody want to do that?
