Well done to Chigwell Sixth Former Meenakshi who won the renowned Robinson College, Cambridge Essay Prize!

The title of her essay was: '"The translated text must add up to the original. Translation is like a problem in math- using different numbers, the answer must be the same" (Lydia Davis). Discuss.' Meenakshi explored the logistics of translation and assessed what constitutes a 'good' translation, exploring renowned theories, such as Goethe's notion of Weltliteratur, and performed very well indeed.

The competition is designed to give sixth formers a chance to showcase their writing skills and provide a taste of the type of academic writing they might be expected to undertake at Cambridge and Meenakshi was invited to a Prizewinners' Lunch at Cambridge.
