The history by Herodotus( Book )

20 editions published between 1864 and 2016 in French and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Grene, one of the best known translators of the Greek classics, splendidly captures the peculiar quality of Herodotus, the father of history. Here is the historian, investigating and judging what he has seen, heard, and read, and seeking out the true causes and consequences of the great deeds of the past. In his History, the war between the Greeks and Persians, the origins of their enmity, and all the more general features of the civilizations of the world of his day are seen as a unity and expressed as the vision of one man who as a child lived through the last of the great acts in this universal drama. In Grene's remarkable translation and commentary, we see the historian as a storyteller, combining through his own narration the skeletal "historical" facts and the imaginative reality toward which his story reaches. Herodotus emerges in all his charm and complexity as a writer and the first historian in the Western tradition, perhaps unique in the way he has seen the interrelation of fact and fantasy

L'Iliade et l'Odyssée by Homer( )

Pendant la guerre de Troie, le roi Agamemnon et ses troupes grecques viennent récupérer Hélène, enlevée par Pâris. Les deux camps s'affrontent alors au cours de batailles mythiques, faisant preuve de bravoure, comme l'ont montré Achille l'invaincu et le valeureux Hector. Dix ans plus tard, Ulysse n'a toujours pas regagné son pays, l'île d'Ithaque. Son voyage en mer est troublé par les tempête et la rencontre de créatures monstrueuses, comme le Cyclope ou les sirènes. mais Ulysse doit se presser, car son royaume est en danger, et Télémaque, son fils, ne pourra pas le protéger éternellement...

The Iliad by Homer( )

5 editions published between 1866 and 1883 in French and held by 20 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
