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 706 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

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

Main description: The main focus of the commentary on book 24 of the Iliad is the interpretation of one of the most exciting and moving scenes in the epic: how the Trojan King, Priam, makes his way to his deadly enemy Achilles, at whose hands his son Hector had died; how the god Hermes guides him almost mystically into the Greek camp; how Achilles, at the end of an emotional encounter, invites Priam to dine with him and hands over Hector's body for burial
