"'The Homeric Hymn to Demeter' is the familiar story of Persephone's abduction by Hades, Demeter's anger, the founding of the Elusinian Mysteries, and the origin of Persephone's seasonal return to the land of the living. Composed between the eighth and fifth centuries BC, the so-called Homeric Hymns are epic songs dedicated to various gods, and by tradition (falsely) attributed to Homer, the poet of the Iliad and Odyssey. 'The Homeric Hymn to Demeter' is one of the oldest"--Back cover blurb

Iliad by Homer( Book )

6 editions published between 1960 and 1971 in 4 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Homer's stirring heroic account of the Trojan war and its passions. The eloquent and dramatic epic poem captures the terrible anger of Achilles, "the best of the Achaeans," over a grave insult to his personal honor and relates its tragic result: a chain of consequences that prove devastating for the Greek forces besieging Troy, for noble Trojans, and for Achilles himself. The poet gives us compelling characterizations of his protagonists as well as a remarkable study of the heroic code in antiquity. The works attributed to Homer include the two oldest and greatest European epic poems, the Odyssey and the Iliad. These have been published in the Loeb Classical Library for three quarters of a century, the Greek text facing a faithful and literate prose translation by A.T. Murray. William F. Wyatt now brings the Loeb's Iliad up to date, with a rendering that retains Murray's admirable style but is written for today's readers

Homer, the Iliad by M. S Silk( Book )

2 editions published between 1948 and 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a distinctive critical introduction to Homer's Iliad, the earliest epic poem, and the earliest known work of literature in ancient Greece. Michael Silk deals with the poem's historical context, its composition and its extensive influence, and relates its literary power to the peculiar coherence and inter-relation of such aspects of the poem as its style, character-portrayal and ideology. Through use of quotation from the original and accompanying English translation, close attention is paid to the distinctive texture of Homeric poetry. This revised edition takes account of recent scholarship in the field and includes a comprehensive updated guide to further reading. It is essential reading for students of literature and classics
Homers Ilias : Gesamtkommentar (Basler Kommentar/BK): auf der Grundlage der Ausgabe von Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) by Homer( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in Breton and Greek, Ancient and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed around 730 B.C., Homer's Iliad recounts the events of a few momentous weeks in the protracted ten-year war between the invading Achaeans, or Greeks, and the Trojans in their besieged city of Ilion. From the explosive confrontation between Achilles, the greatest warrior at Troy, and Agamemnon, the inept leader of the Greeks, through to its tragic conclusion, The Iliad explores the abiding, blighting facts of war. Carved close to the original Greek, acclaimed classicist Caroline Alexander's new translation is swift and lean, with the driving cadence of its source--a translation epic in scale and yet devastating in its precision and power." --
