Homers Ilias by Homer( Book )

167 editions published between 1793 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Homer-Übersetzungen von Johann Heinrich Voß (1751-1826) in deutsche Hexameter haben zu ihrer Zeit den Übersetzungsstil revolutioniert und sind bis heute die verbreitetste deutsche Fassung geblieben. Voß überwand die seinerzeit übliche, am "normalen" Deutsch orientierte Übersetzungstechnik zugunsten einer weitgehenden Nachbildung des Originals. Wir würden heute sagen, er versuchte dem Fremden seine Fremdheit nicht völlig zu nehmen, sondern im Deutschen möglichst viel vom Genius des Originals durchscheinen zu lassen. Seine Übersetzungen waren dabei nicht so sehr zum Lesen wie zum Vortragen gedacht. Voß hat zeitlebens an seinen Übersetzungen gearbeitet. Es gibt zahlreiche Auflagen, die sich im Text erheblich unterscheiden. Für die "Ilias" galt bisher die ältere Fassung von 1793 als die poetischte. In eingehenden Vergleichen erwies sich jedoch die letzte Version von 1821 als klar überlegen. Die gesamte "Ilias" ungekürzt in der Übersetzung von Johann Heinrich Voß (Fassung letzter Hand, 1821)

Idylls. A verse translation by Theocritus( Book )

90 editions published between 1783 and 1929 in 3 languages and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new annotated translation of the Greek poems of Theocritus of Syracuse (first half of the third century B.C.), the inventor of 'bucolic' or 'pastoral' poetry, the principal model for Virgil in the Eclogues, and hence a major figure in the literary traditions which antiquity bequeathed to Western literature. Although it is the pastoral poems for which he is best known, Theocritus' oeuvre also includes hymns to the gods, brilliant mime depictions of everyday life, and encomia of the great, such as Ptolemy Philadelphus. Theocritus is our best witness to the rich variety of poetic forms which flourished in the Hellenistic age."--BOOK JACKET

The anger of Achilles : Homer's Iliad by Homer( Book )

66 editions published between 1802 and 1953 in 3 languages and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The war between the Greeks and the Trojans has reached a fever pitch. Offended by Agamemnon, the great Greek warrior Achilles is in his tent, refusing to fight. But then Trojan prince Hector slaughters Patroclus, Achilles' close friend. Willing or not, Achilles must take revenge for his friend's death, even if it will result in his own. The Anger of Achilles is a novelized interpretation of Homer's Iliad, told by noted classicist and historical novelist Robert Graves. In this innovative take on the classic tale, Achilles comes to life in all his vivid rage, bravery, passion, and lust for battle. Combining his advanced expertise in ancient Greek warfare and culture with a talent for telling a compelling story, Robert Graves is the ideal translator to bring this ancient epic of war to a modern audience
