The Iliad by Homer( Book )

401 editions published between 1793 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,006 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)

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
Der Briefwechsel zwischen Johann Martin Miller und Johann Heinrich Voß by Johann Martin Miller( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

72 editions published between 1789 and 1960 in German and Undetermined and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ovid is, after Homer, the single most important source for classical mythology. The Metamorphoses, which he wrote over the six-year period leading up to his exile from Rome in 8 a.d., is the primary source for over two hundred classical legends that survived to the twenty-first century. Many of the most familiar classical myths, including the stories of Apollo and Daphne and Pyramus and Thisbe, come directly from Ovid. The Metamorphoses is a twelve-thousand-line poem, written in dactylic hexameters and arranged loosely in chronological order from the beginning of the universe's creation to the Augustan Rome of Ovid's own time. The major theme of the Metamorphoses, as the title suggests, is metamorphosis, or change. Throughout the fifteen books making up the Metamorphoses, the idea of change is pervasive. Gods are continually transforming their own selves and shapes, as well as the shapes and beings of humans. The theme of power is also ever-present in Ovid's work. The gods as depicted by the Roman poets are wrathful, vengeful, capricious creatures who are forever turning their powers against weaker mortals and half-mortals, especially females. Ovid's own situation as a poet who was exiled because of Augustus's capriciousness is thought by many to be reflected in his depictions of the relationships between the gods and humans."--Http://www.enotes.com/metamorphoses-of-ovid (Jan. 24, 2011.)
