Description Philips, Katherine Fowler (1631-1664) London: H. Herringman, 1678 Third edition PR3619 P4 1678 In 1663, poet Katherine Fowler Philips, daughter of a moderate Puritan and wife of a prominent Parliamentarian, translated Pierre Corneille’s tragedy La Mort de Pompée. Her translation was performed that year at Smock Alley Theatre in Dublin. The publication of Pompey was well-received and secured her reputation as an author. In 1664, a collection of her poetry plus her translation of La Mort de Pompée and her translation of Corneille’s Horace was published, much to her displeasure. She objected to the quality of the printing and the edition was removed from sale. Nevertheless, the book was reprinted in 1669, 1678 and once more in 1710.
