The war at Troy; what Homer didn't tell by Quintus( Book )

84 editions published between 1913 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quintus was a poet who lived at Smyrna some four hundred years after Christ. His work, in fourteen books, is a bold and generally underrated attempt in Homer's style to complete the story of Troy from the point at which the Iliad closes. Quintus tells us the stories of Penthesilea, the Amazonian queen; Memnon, leader of the Ethiopians; the death of Achilles; the contest for Achilles' arms between Ajax and Odysseus; the arrival of Philoctetes; and the making of the wooden horse. The poem ends with the departure of the Greeks and the great storm which by the wrath of heaven shattered their fleet. -- JACKET

Longinus on the sublime : the Greek text edited after the Paris manuscript by Longinus( Book )

12 editions published between 1899 and 1935 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the 1907 second edition of W. Rhys Roberts' Longinus on the Sublime. The volume contains the Greek text edited after the Paris manuscript, an extensive introduction, and a thorough and accessible translation of the main text. Roberts' introduction is divided into two parts: the authorship of the Treatise, and its content and character. Roberts is careful to place On the Sublime in its critical context, challenging both the inscription and description of this classical text. The author is thought to be an unknown teacher, and not the historical Longinus, whilst the 'sublime' in this instance is not 'the sublime' as we would commonly understand it. On the Sublime is a text which dissects the problems of literary criticism and the aesthetics of Greek literature. The lively and intelligent style of the text will ensure that Roberts' edition is enjoyed by Greek scholars and general readers alike

12 editions published between 1906 and 1908 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Iliad by Homer( Book )

19 editions published between 1885 and 1910 in English and Undetermined and held by 122 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

Argonautica by Apollonius( Book )

7 editions published between 1891 and 2013 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apollonius Rhodius's Argonautica, composed in the third century B.C.E., is the epic retelling of Jason's quest for the golden fleece. Along with his contemporaries Callimachus and Theocritus, Apollonius refashioned Greek poetry to meet the interests and aesthetics of a Hellenistic audience, especially that of Alexandria in the Ptolemaic period following Alexander's death. In this carefully crafted work of 5,835 hexameter verses in four books, the author draws on the preceding literary traditions of epic (Homer), lyric (Pindar), and tragedy (especially Euripides) but creates an innovative and complex narrative that includes geography, religion, ethnography, mythology, adventure, exploration, human psychology, and, most of all, the coming of age and love affair of Jason and Medea. It greatly influenced Roman authors such as Catullus, Virgil, and Ovid, and was imitated by Valerius Flaccus." "This new edition of the first volume in the Loeb Classical Library offers a fresh translation and an improved text."--Jacket
