Greece in the bronze age by Emily Vermeule( Book )

81 editions published between 1964 and 1996 in 3 languages and held by 2,288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mycenaean Greece (c. 1600 BC? c. 1100 BC) was a cultural period of Bronze Age Greece taking its name from the archaeological site of Mycenae in northeastern Argolis, in the Peloponnese of southern Greece. Athens, Pylos, Thebes, and Tiryns are also important sites of this period. The last phase of the Bronze Age in Ancient Greece, it is the historical setting of much ancient Greek literature and myth, including the epics of Homer."--Wikipedia

The Mycenaean origin of Greek mythology by Martin P Nilsson( Book )

14 editions published between 1972 and 1983 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nilsson studied the geographical aspects of the Greek myths. He proved that almost without exception, the places in the myths, especially those in the great cycle of stories, are the very same places as those now known from archaeology to have been important Bronze-Age sites ... Nilsson made it amply clear, in a host of interesting details which he worked out with ingenuity and almost always good sense, that the memory of the great Bronze-Age centres survived, and that the stories told of them ... truly reflected, in Classical times, the Mykenaian Age. To have discovered this great bridge was the triumphant achievement of Nilsson." [Back cover]
The Ages of Homer : a tribute to Emily Townsend Vermeule by Jane Burr Carter( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Iliad and Odyssey of Homer have fascinated listeners and readers for over twenty-five centuries. In this volume of original essays, collected to honor the distinguished teaching and research career of Emily T. Vermeule, thirty leading experts in Homeric studies and related fields provide up-to-date, multidisciplinary accounts of the most current issues in and approaches to the study of Homer."--BOOK JACKET. "The book is divided into three sections, covering the three "ages," or historical periods, of Homer. The first section treats the Bronze Age setting of the poems (around 1200 B.C.), using archaeological evidence to reveal the operation of poetic memory in preserving, distorting, and inventing the past. The second section explores the early Iron Age in which the poems were written (ca. 800-500 B.C.), using the strategies of comparative philology and mythology, literary theory, historical linguistics, anthropology, and iconography to determine how the Homeric poems took shape. The final section traces the use of Homer for literary and artistic inspiration by classical antiquity (Greece and Rome)."--BOOK JACKET. "From these essays emerge new answers to old questions such as the date of the Trojan War, the origins of the Catalogue of Ships in Book 2 of the Iliad, the historicity of early Aegean contacts with Egypt, Cyprus and the Levant, and Anatolia, and the relations between literary narrative and contemporary visual representation. In addition, several essays introduce new material relevant to Homeric studies in the form of previously unpublished works of art and new results of excavations."--Jacket

Euripides by Euripides( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides V includes the plays?The Bacchae,? translated by William Arrowsmith;?Iphigenia in Aulis,? translated by Charles R. Walker;?The Cyclops,? translated by William Arrowsmith; and?Rhesus,? translated by Richmond Lattimore. Sixty years ago, the University of Chicago Press undertook a momentous project: a new translation of the Greek tragedies that would be the ultimate resource for teachers, students, and readers. They succeeded. Under the expert management of eminent classicists David Grene and Richmond Lattimore, those translations combined accuracy, poetic immediacy, and clarity of presentation to render the surviving masterpieces of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides in an English so lively and compelling that they remain the standard translations. Today, Chicago is taking pains to ensure that our Greek tragedies remain the leading English-language versions throughout the twenty-first century. In this highly anticipated third edition, Mark Griffith and Glenn W. Most have carefully updated the translations to bring them even closer to the ancient Greek while retaining the vibrancy for which our English versions are famous. This edition also includes brand-new translations of Euripides? Medea, The Children of Heracles, Andromache, and Iphigenia among the Taurians, fragments of lost plays by Aeschylus, and the surviving portion of Sophocles?s satyr-drama The Trackers. New introductions for each play offer essential information about its first production, plot, and reception in antiquity and beyond. In addition, each volume includes an introduction to the life and work of its tragedian, as well as notes addressing textual uncertainties and a glossary of names and places mentioned in the plays. In addition to the new content, the volumes have been reorganized both within and between volumes to reflect the most up-to-date scholarship on the order in which the plays were originally written. The result is a set of handsome paperbacks destined to introduce new generations of readers to these foundational works of Western drama, art, and life

Euripides by Euripides( Book )

2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Euripides of Athens (ca. 485-406 BC), famous in every age for the pathos, terror, surprising plot twists, and intellectual probing of his dramatic creations wrote nearly ninety plays. Of these, eighteen (plus a play of unknown authorship mistakenly included with his works) have come down to us from antiquity. In this first volume of a new Loeb edition of Euripides David Kovacs gives us a freshly edited Greek text of three plays and an accurate and graceful translation with explanatory notes. Alcestis is the story of a woman who agrees--in order to save her husband's life--to die in his place. Medea is a tragedy of revenge in which Medea kills her own children, as well as their father's new wife to punish him for his desertion. The volume begins with Cyclops, a satyr play--the only complete example of this genre to survive. Each play is preceded by an introduction. In a general introduction Kovacs demonstrates that the biographical tradition about Euripides---parts of which view him as a subverter of morality, religion, and art--cannot be relied on. He argues that this tradition has often furnished the unacknowledged starting point for interpretation, and that the way is now clear for an unprejudiced consideration of the plays themselves. David Kovacs, Professor of Classics at the University of Virginia has written widely about Euripides
