Troy and Homer : towards a solution of an old mystery by Joachim Latacz( Book )

12 editions published in 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Joachim Latacz turns the spotlight of modern research on the much-debated question of whether the wealthy city of Troy described by Homer in the Iliad was a poetic fiction or a memory of historical reality. Earlier excavations at the hill of Hisarlik, in Turkey, on the Dardanelles, brought no answer, but in 1988 a new archaeological enterprise, under the direction of Manfred Korfmann, led to a radical shift in understanding. Latacz, one of Korfmann's closest collaborators, traces the course of these excavations, and the renewed investigation of the imperial Hittite archives they have inspired. As he demonstrates, it is now clear that the background against which the plot of the Iliad is acted out is the historical reality of the thirteenth century BC. The Troy story as a whole must have arisen in this period, and we can detect traces of it in Homer's great poem

Homers Ilias : Gesamtkommentar (Basler Kommentar/BK) by Joachim Latacz( Book )

48 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) no comprehensive, scholarly commentary of Homer's Iliad has been published in German. In the meantime considerable progress has been made in many traditional areas of Homeric studies (language, realia, structure etc.). In addition, generally acknowledged new fields such as narratology have been systematically studied. Furthermore, the knowledge of the Mycenaean language (Linear B) and oral poetry provide completely new possibilities of textual constitution and analysis. Using the old Ameis-Hentze-Cauer as a starting point, the new commentary reflects the cu

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)
