ABSTRACT
The article presents notes on the author William Shakespeare and the translators. Author Arthur Golding's translation of metamorphosis where the maidens are pictured drawing water `into running tubbes which evermore did spill. The reason for the echo of Golding is that throughout his work, which is highly derivative. From Fraunce Shakespeare picks up Golding's clumsy phraseology, dispenses with the more Lucretian phrase of `our unthankful mindes', and recalls the Belides as a symbol for `unsatiable desires' of a specifically sexual kind.
