Robin Bond

Robin Bond Robin Bond joined the staff of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand in 1966, where he later completed a doctorate on the impact of Stoicism on the Satires of Horace. Satire and the live theatre have been his focus of work and his passion during his long teaching career at Canterbury, where he still teaches in the Department of Classics and, as a guest, from time to time in the Department of Theatre and Film. Long interested in the translation of ancient dramatic texts for the modern stage, Professor Bond has latterly become interested also in the performing aspects of other Latin literary genres, especially of satire and of oratory.
