Pope spent his formative years as a poet translating Homer, beginning with the Iliad, and in his translation he successfully found a style that answers the sublimity and grace of Homer.

Pope's Preface and the three indexes are also included

"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."
The Iliad by Homer( Book )

42 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in English and held by 2,679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
The Iliad by Homer( Book )

250 editions published between 1866 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 2,617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic war story, the Iliad centers on Achilles, Helen, Hector, and other heroes of Greek myth and history in the 10th and final year of the Greek siege of Troy
The Homeric hymns by Homer( Book )

343 editions published between 1785 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,716 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"
Iliad by Homer( Book )

8 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The vividness of Homer's language, his large-scale rhythms and hard edges, are laid bare in this new translation--as is the bracing speech of his gods and mortals and, above all, the boldness of his narrative strokes."--Jacket

37 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interspersing clear, vigorous prose with lyrics, this brilliantly readable translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing The Illiad as part of the bardic tradition and shedding light on Homor's cynical view of power. --Publisher

Chronicles the perilous ten-year journey of Odysseus from the battlefields of Troy to his home in Ithaca
Homers Ilias by Homer( Book )

443 editions published between 1793 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Homer-Übersetzungen von Johann Heinrich Voß (1751-1826) in deutsche Hexameter haben zu ihrer Zeit den Übersetzungsstil revolutioniert und sind bis heute die verbreitetste deutsche Fassung geblieben. Voß überwand die seinerzeit übliche, am "normalen" Deutsch orientierte Übersetzungstechnik zugunsten einer weitgehenden Nachbildung des Originals. Wir würden heute sagen, er versuchte dem Fremden seine Fremdheit nicht völlig zu nehmen, sondern im Deutschen möglichst viel vom Genius des Originals durchscheinen zu lassen. Seine Übersetzungen waren dabei nicht so sehr zum Lesen wie zum Vortragen gedacht. Voß hat zeitlebens an seinen Übersetzungen gearbeitet. Es gibt zahlreiche Auflagen, die sich im Text erheblich unterscheiden. Für die "Ilias" galt bisher die ältere Fassung von 1793 als die poetischte. In eingehenden Vergleichen erwies sich jedoch die letzte Version von 1821 als klar überlegen. Die gesamte "Ilias" ungekürzt in der Übersetzung von Johann Heinrich Voß (Fassung letzter Hand, 1821)

The epic tale of the warrior Odysseus' journey home from the Trojan War
The Iliad of Homer ; and, the Odyssey by Homer( Book )

92 editions published between 1811 and 2017 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] recounts the wanderings of Odysseus after the Trojay War and his final homecoming to Ithaca, where he found his wife Penelope still faithful to him. It is a fantastical adventure story with a comic tone and a happy ending.-The Reader's Adviser

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

12 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 84 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
Homers Ilias : Gesamtkommentar (Basler Kommentar/BK); auf der Grundlage der Ausgabe von Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) by Homer( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein deutschsprachiger wissenschaftlicher Gesamtkommentar zu Homers Ilias ist seit dem Kommentar von Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) nicht mehr erschienen. In der Zwischenzeit hat die Homer-Forschung auf sämtlichen traditionellen Teilgebieten (Sprache, Realien, Struktur usw.) erhebliche Fortschritte gemacht. Darüber hinaus sind grundsätzlich bekannte Bereiche wie z. B. die Erzählforschung auf eine systematische Grundlage gestellt worden. Schließlich sind mit Mykenologie (Linear B) und Oral-poetry- sowie Troia-Forschung gänzlich neue Möglichkeiten der Texterschließung hinzugekommen. Ausgehend von der Basis des alten Ameis-Hentze-Cauer spiegelt der Kommentar den gegenwärtigen Kenntnisstand der Homerforschung in umfassender Breite wider. Der "Basler Kommentar" zur Ilias wird von der Fachwelt als neues Grundlagenwerk weltweit stark beachtet. Ein inhaltlich und formal neuartiges Konzept kommt den Bedürfnissen unterschiedlicher Benutzergruppen entgegen. Adressaten sind Studierende und Dozenten an Universität und Schule, nicht nur der Altertumswissenschaften, sondern allgemein der Literatur- und Kulturwissenschaften. Vom ursprünglichen Plan, Gesang für Gesang vorzugehen, wurde Abstand genommen. Um den gegenwärtigen Präferenzen in der Schul- und Universitätslandschaft entgegenzukommen, sollen sechs vielgelesene Homer-Gesänge bis spätestens zum Jahr 2009 verfügbar sein, und zwar die Gesänge 3 (Mauerschau, Waffenstillstandsvertrag, Zweikampf Menelaos-Paris), 6 (Diomedes-Glaukos-Episode, Hektor in Troia), 9 (Bittgesandtschaft zum grollenden Achilleus), 19 (Achills Absage an seinen Groll und Rückkehr in die Heeresgemeinschaft), 22 (Hektors Tod) und 24 (Freigabe von Hektors Leichnam an Priamos durch Achill)
