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 720 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

Homer's Iliad : the Basel commentary by Magdalene Stoevesandt( Book )

27 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and German and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This commentary on the 6th book of the Iliad concentrates on the interpretation of two episodes which have received a great deal of scholarly attention: the encounter between Diomedes and Glaukos, which surprisingly ends with an exchange of weapons and not a duel, and the series of scenes ‘Hector in Troy’, which reveal the hero’s conflicting roles as defender of the city and father of his family

20 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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)

8 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in German and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) no comprehensive, scholarly commentary of Homer's Iliad has been published in German.

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
