The Iliad by Homer( Book )

6,077 editions published between 1474 and 2020 in 55 languages and held by 57,557 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

"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."

HOMER, The works assigned to Homer include the earliest and greatest European epic poems, but nothing is known of their Greek author (if not authors) unless it is that his country was Ionia in Asia Minor. To the ancients Homeric poetry at first was all the old epics, especially about Thebes and Troy; then 'Homer' was credited only with the Iliad and the Odyssey which we still have, and some minor poems of which we include Homeric Hymns in the volume containing Hesoid. The 24 books of the Iliad concern the 'anger of Achilles' during the war of the Greeks against Troy, extending from Achilles' quarrel with Agamemnon to the burial of Hector. The Odyssey presents the fortunes of Odysseus and his son Telamachus after the fall of Troy, and Odysseus' return home to Ithaca and his revenge on the rapacious suitors of his wife Penelope. It would require a book to list the work of scholarship done on these marvellous narratives of which part at least of the greatness can be suggested in translation

The Homeric hymns by Homer( Book )

327 editions published between 1785 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 1,834 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"
The anger of Achilles : Homer's Iliad by Homer( Book )

29 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in English and held by 1,761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The war between the Greeks and the Trojans has reached a fever pitch. Offended by Agamemnon, the great Greek warrior Achilles is in his tent, refusing to fight. But then Trojan prince Hector slaughters Patroclus, Achilles' close friend. Willing or not, Achilles must take revenge for his friend's death, even if it will result in his own. The Anger of Achilles is a novelized interpretation of Homer's Iliad, told by noted classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves. In this innovative take on the classic tale, Achilles comes to life in all his vivid rage, bravery, passion, and lust for battle. Combining his advanced expertise in ancient Greek warfare and culture with a talent for telling a compelling story, Robert Graves is the ideal translator to bring this ancient epic of war to a modern audience
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 1,687 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

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
Homer's Odyssey by Homer( Book )

108 editions published between 1810 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For George Chapman (1559-1634) his translation of Homer was 'the work that I was born to do'. The publication of his Iliad and Odyssey together in 1616 was a landmark in English literature, but until now there has been no edition which modernises his spelling and punctuation and also provides detailed help in grasping his often obscure language, and in understanding how and why he translated Homer in the particular way he did. This edition of the Odyssey, a companion to Robert Miola's edition of the Iliad, aims to bring Chapman's rendering alive for the modern reader. Its literary, philosophical, and religious context is explained in an Introduction and in footnotes, and side- and end-glosses clarify Chapman's English. His Odyssey is not only a stylistic masterpiece of seventeenth-century English: it constitutes a profound and moving interpretation - still relevant after four hundred years - of Homer's story of the suffering and grace implicit in the human condition. Through its teeming diversity of events, settings, and characters Homer and his first English translator explore the question of what it means to be human in a complex and threatening world
