Description

Traduttore, traditore: An act of translation is always an act of betrayal.

Oxford, 1836.

It is the centre of all knowledge and progress in the world.

And at its centre is Babel, the Royal Institute of Translation. The tower from which all the power of the Empire flows.

Until it became a prison…

But can a student stand against an empire?
