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+-+8180275965256239ocn048139493book19570.35Knox, BernardOedipus at Thebes Sophocles' tragic hero and his time+-+4879255585324215513ocn034583995book19900.23HomerThe OdysseyPoetryEpic poetry, GreekA new translation of the epic poem retells the story of Odysseus's ten-year voyage home to Ithaca after the Trojan War+-+8133175965204520ocn009685728book19820.28SophoclesThe three Theban playsDramaAristotle called "Oedipus The King," the second-written of the three Theban plays written by Sophocles, the masterpiece of the whole of Greek theater. Today, nearly 2,500 years after Sophocles wrote, scholars and audiences still consider it one of the most powerful dramatic works ever made. Freud sure did. The three plays--"Antigone," "Oedipus the King," and "Oedipus at Colonus"--are not strictly a trilogy, but all are based on the Theban myths that were old even in Sophocles' time.

Is their legacy at all relevant to the way we live now?" "Multiculturalism and its accompanying reevaluation of Western history and culture have brought with them a heightened sense of the strangeness - the "otherness" - of the Greeks. Modern scholarship has relentlessly exposed the blind adoration of earlier generations and concentrated, in Knox's words, on "the dark underside of what the Victorians hailed as the Greek Miracle." So much of what the Greeks were and did seems, today, positively alien at best. (In the title essay Knox explores the ritual of sacrifice, the Greek sense of self, the institution of slavery, and the inferior position of women in Greek society.)" "Yet for all their flaws, the ancient Greeks literally invented philosophy, the theater, the concept of a national literature, competitive athletics, political theory, rhetoric and oratory, biology, zoology, atomic theory - one could go on. And through the Sophists they invented the very idea of the humanities, a group of studies that came into being "as an education for democracy, a training in free citizenship."" "We cannot simply discard what the recent critical examination of the ancient Greeks has unearthed. But we cannot at the same time forget - and Bernard Knox brings his immense learning and crystalline prose to bear in helping all of us remember - their astonishing originality, their central importance, and all that we have learned (and continue to learn) from them."--BOOK JACKET+-+0749858485118822ocn000316037book19590.18SophoclesOedipus the KingDramaSophocles' tragic drama about the downfall of Oedipus after the prophesy that he will murder his father and marry his mother comes true+-+3953336215114016ocn004774702book10790.47Knox, BernardWord and action : essays on the ancient theaterHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+545983653599319ocn008975550book19830.47Easterling, P.
