Default Examples of good literary translations

Hello everybody.
Can you share the examples of what you know of as good literary translation, and say why you consider it to be a good translation?
I am always thinking of Stanislaw Baranczak as a great translator of poetry, and he's also known for writing on this topic (his book Ocalone w tłumaczeniu is recommended by a great number of teachers). Himself being a poet he probably understood very well how to translate poetry. He was able to transmit the 'feeling' behind the translated text so poetry remained poetry.
Could you mention any others?
