Pożegnanie Hektora z Andromachą w tekstach i obrazach
The Parting of Hector and Andromache in Texts and Pictures
Languages of publication
The scene of parting of Hector and Andromache from the 6th book of Homer’s Iliad has been a source of countless adaptations, both literary and visual, especially in the second half of the 18th and in the 19th century. It seems as if the motif has been transmitted from one work to another without accounting for intrinsic differences between the media employed; what was subject to change, however, was the scenery and the emphasis on particular features of the scene. This process can be treated as a translation of a sort, not only on the level of ideas and emotions, but also on that of the setting. What played a role in shifts between the different media were also thetranslations in the traditional sense (from one language to another).
