The author studies the traditional dichotomy between free and literal translation as it appears in the theories of translation by Dryden (1631-1700) and Breitinger (1701-1776). This is followed by a historical study of its development and/or superseding in the 20th century. The main aim is to prove and explain the historical strength of this antithesis.
