Lost Atlantis; new light on an old legend by John Victor Luce( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While granting that Plato embellished many of the details of the legend, the author believes that there is a hard core of historical fact embedded in the concept of Atlantis. Archæological discoveries, particularly the work of Sir Arthur Evans and his successors in Crete, form the basis of this reappraisal and reconstruction of the legend, mainly in connection with the striking theory of the volcanic destruction of the Minoan Empire. Calling upon the very latest findings of volcanologists, seismologists and oceanographers, the author presents plausible evidence that the island of Crete was devastated by a great natural cataclysm about 1450 B.C. which also caused the disappearance of another adjacent island-empire. -- Book jacket

Celebrating Homer's landscapes : Troy and Ithaca revisited by John Victor Luce( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this beautiful and engaging book, an eminent authority on Homeric texts takes us on a tour of the main localities that Homer paints so vividly in his Iliad and Odyssey. Providing numerous photographs of the terrain and quoting liberally from the two epics, J.V. Luce argues convincingly that Homer's descriptions of the ancient landscape, far from being poetic fantasies, are accurate in every detail." "Luce's book is a significant contribution for specialists and a delightful companion for readers of Homer or visitors to the ancient sites."--Jacket
