Main description: With this critical edition of the Miller-Voß correspondence, one of the most important documents for the history of the 'Göttinger Hain' is published here in its entirety for the first time. The circle of young poets associated with the Sturm und Drang movement endeavored to undertake a renewal of poetry. The letters, written between 1774 and 1810, reflect the differences between two correspondents and their work and reveal their diverse contacts to famous contemporaries in times of historic upheaval. The text is accompanied by an in-depth commentary

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)
Die Odyssee by Homer ( Book )

Man kann ohne Übertreibung sagen, dass erst die Übersetzung von Johann Heinrich Voß (1751-1926) Homers Odyssee in Deutschland wirklich bekannt und letztlich populär gemacht hat. Voß gelingt es, die Metrik der griechischen Verse in deutschen Hexametern kongenial abzubilden. Dabei klingen seine Verse niemals schulmäßig oder gespreizt, sondern atmen den Geist des mündlich vorgetragenen Versepos, das unter Homers Namen bekannt geworden ist. Man kann im besten Sinne von einer deutschen Nachdichtung durch Johann Heinrich Voß sprechen, die als klassischer Text alle späteren Modernisierungen überstrah
