The Timaeus

Great literature grows with you as you move through life, a generally appreciated phenomenon. You notice more, and hence enjoy more. For example, this jumped out at me as I was rereading the Timaeus:

“Revised by order of the Jowett Copyright Trustees, Oxford, 1953.”

This line protects a 19th century translation probably through 2048. I apologize, that last sentence is slightly wrong… it’s a revised 19th century translation. Revision ordered by copyright trustees. But our laws are to protect creative endeavor, right?

Ahh, the classics.
