65 Gilbert F. ’66 Tinkler-Villani carries out an interesting comparison between The Vision and Boyd’s translation. 67 These approaches demonstrate the essential ambiguity of Cary’s position. As Crisafulli points out, The Vision both conﬁrms and contradicts Venuti’s broad category of translators’ ‘invisibility’: ﬁrst, Cary’s large use of critical paratexts highlights the translator’s critical and translating practice; secondly, and more importantly, Cary’s practice of domestication is less striking when set against the contemporary expectations of a translation’s conformity to contemporary literary norms.
67 Both Reynolds’s and Fuseli’s paintings of Ugolino illustrate his imprisonment in the tower with his sons (see Figures 1 and 2). 68 There is a signiﬁcant analogy between the two as both are inspired by Michelangelo. Reynolds’s ﬁgure is based on the ﬁgure of Aminadab from the Sistine Chapel. Fuseli, too, uses Michelangelo, but to a higher degree and with different results: he intensiﬁes the pathos of the scene by giving Ugolino some features of Michelangelo’s Moses and by supplanting the emphasis on stillness with features of despair.
The publication of the original text alongside the translation has a special signiﬁcance since this was the ﬁrst complete canticle of the Divine Comedy in Italian to be printed in England. 61 By October he was able to inform Price: My time is at present fully occupied in printing my translation, and in transcribing and amending my notes for it. The whole of the ﬁrst Henry Francis Cary’s The Vision 41 volume, and the second part of the second is printed. I wish I could have your revisal [sic] of the whole before it went to press.
