Porson Prize: Notice

Statutes and Ordinances, 2008, pp. 716 and 853

The Porson Prize for 2009 will be given for the best translation into Greek verse, in the tragic iambic metre and accentuated, of the following passage:

Shelley, Prometheus Unbound Act I lines 240-265 ('Why have the secret powers… shalt thou not subdue.')

Resident undergraduates may be candidates for this Prize if on 1 February 2009 not more than seven complete terms will have passed after their first term of residence.

Candidates must send three copies of their exercise to the Registrary (addressed to the Awards Clerk), The Old Schools, Cambridge, CB2 1TN, so as to reach him not later than 1 February 2009. The exercise must be printed or typewritten; it must bear a motto (a short phrase, in English or Latin script), but not the candidate's name, and must be accompanied by a sealed envelope bearing the same motto outside and containing the candidate's name and College. The present value of the Prize is £60.

N.B. Candidates' attention is drawn to the general regulations (Statutes and Ordinances, 2008, p. 716), and in particular to Regulations 10 and 11.
