10:59 am - Translations of Liaisons
What translations does everybody have, and are they good or not? I have the Richard Aldington, Pocket Books, 1988, not a very literary edition I suppose.

1961 Penguin, P. Stone, seems nice to me. Nothing glaringly wrong with it, certainly, it flows well and so on, and of course people are raving about it on the back cover. At least there aren't any pompoms...

I'm also using the Stone translation. I have nothing to compare it to, but the language never distracted from the story, so I can at least say it did the job.

I'm also using the Richard Aldington version, Signet Classic, 1962, but this version has pictures from the 1988 film.

I'm using the Everyman's Library 1992 edition, translation by Richard Aldington
