The Iliad by Homer( Book )

The centuries old epic about the wrath of Achilles is rendered into modern English verse by a renowned translator and accompanied by an introduction that reassesses the identity of Homer. In Robert Fagles' beautifully rendered text, the Iliad overwhelms us afresh. The huge themes godlike, yet utterly human of savagery and calculation, of destiny defied, of triumph and grief compel our own humanity. Time after time, one pauses and re-reads before continuing. Fagles' voice is always that of a poet and scholar of our own age as he conveys the power of Homer. Robert Fagles and Bernard Knox are to be congratulated and praised on this admirable work

"When Paris of Troy fell in love with Helen of Sparta and took her to his homeland, the princes of Greece launched a fleet of a thousand ships filled with armed men to bring her back. Led by Helen's brother-in-law, Agamemnon, this immense force would besiege Troy for 10 years in a staggering effort to rescue the princess. The Iliad is the story of Achilles, the greatest warrior of this decade-long war, and his desperate but ultimately futile battle against the once magnificent city."--Container

Vertaald en van aantekeningen voorzien door Imme Dros. Het blijft een wonder: het eerste boek van de westerse literatuur, de 'Ilias' uit de achtste eeuw v. Chr., is misschien ook het beste wat ooit geschreven is. Het grote epos over de gruwelen van de oorlog, eerzucht en wraak, maar ook over liefde en vriendschap, is tot in onze tijd ongelooflijk invloedrijk gebleven. Na het grote succes van haar 'Odysseia', heeft Imme Dros nu ook de 'Ilias' vertaald. Tot groot genoegen van haar enorme schare fans. Het beleg van Troje sleept zich al vele jaren voort en het ziet er niet naar uit dat de Grieken dicht bij een overwinning zijn. Hun grootste held Achilleus heeft zich na een ruzie met legerleider Agamemnon teruggetrokken uit de oorlog. Pas als zijn geliefde Patroklos is gesneuveld (in de wapenrusting van Achilleus), werpt hij zich weer in de strijd, om hem te wreken. In een tweegevecht doodt hij de Trojaanse leider Hektor, waarna hij het lijk achter zijn wagen drie keer rond Troje (Ilios) en daarna naar het Griekse kamp sleept. De vele beroemde passages, zoals het afscheid van Hektor en Andromache, de dood van Patroklos, de smeekbede van koning Priamos om het lijk van zijn zoon Hektor, de beschrijving van het schild van Achilleus, en de ruziënde goden, zijn nu te lezen in een sprankelende nieuwe vertaling

The Homeric hymns by Homer( Book )

270 editions published between 1785 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Homeric Hymns have survived for two and a half millennia because of their captivating stories, beautiful language, and religious significance. Well before the advent of writing in Greece, they were performed by traveling bards at religious events, competitions, banquets, and festivals. These thirty-four poems invoking and celebrating the gods of ancient Greece raise questions that humanity still struggles with-questions about our place among others and in the world. Known as ""Homeric"" because they were composed in the same meter, dialect, and style as Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, these hymn"

Odyssea Homeri a Francisco Griffolino Aretino in latinum translata : die lateinische Odyssee-Übersetzung des Francesco Griffolini by Homer( )

12 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In about the year 1462 Francesco Griffolini of Arezzo translated the Odyssey of Homer into Latin at the behest of Pope Pius II. In contrast to the most important of his predecessors in the field of Homer translation, Leontius Pilatus, who was still completely committed to the medieval method of literal translation, Griffolini made use of the skills acquired from the masters of humanist Latin and created a prose text which also appealed to classical criteria. This volume offers a critical text of this Odyssey translation edited on the basis of the manuscripts. The extensive introduction provides information about the life and work of Francesco Griffolini, examines his method of translation and clarifies the manuscript transmission of the text. The edition represents a contribution to the history of Homer translation in the Italian renaissance and forms an important basis for further study of the reception of Homer in humanism."--Publisher's website

Here is a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Homer's stirring heroic account of the Trojan war and its passions. The eloquent and dramatic epic poem captures the terrible anger of Achilles, "the best of the Achaeans," over a grave insult to his personal honor and relates its tragic result: a chain of consequences that prove devastating for the Greek forces besieging Troy, for noble Trojans, and for Achilles himself. The poet gives us compelling characterizations of his protagonists as well as a remarkable study of the heroic code in antiquity. The works attributed to Homer include the two oldest and greatest European epic poems, the Odyssey and the Iliad. These have been published in the Loeb Classical Library for three quarters of a century, the Greek text facing a faithful and literate prose translation by A.T. Murray. William F. Wyatt now brings the Loeb's Iliad up to date, with a rendering that retains Murray's admirable style but is written for today's readers
