"When Paris of Troy fell in love with Helen of Sparta and took her to his homeland, the princes of Greece launched a fleet of a thousand ships filled with armed men to bring her back. Led by Helen's brother-in-law, Agamemnon, this immense force would besiege Troy for 10 years in a staggering effort to rescue the princess. The Iliad is the story of Achilles, the greatest warrior of this decade-long war, and his desperate but ultimately futile battle against the once magnificent city."
The Iliad by Homer( Book )

47 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in English and held by 2,687 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

345 editions published between 1785 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Homeric Hymns have survived for two and a half millennia because of their captivating stories, beautiful language, and religious significance. Well before the advent of writing in Greece, they were performed by traveling bards at religious events, competitions, banquets, and festivals. These thirty-four poems invoking and celebrating the gods of ancient Greece raise questions that humanity still struggles with-questions about our place among others and in the world. Known as ""Homeric"" because they were composed in the same meter, dialect, and style as Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, these hymn"

Homers Ilias by Homer( Book )

450 editions published between 1793 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 974 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)

Odyssea Homeri a Francisco Griffolino Aretino in latinum translata : die lateinische Odyssee-Übersetzung des Francesco Griffolini by Homer( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in 4 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In about the year 1462 Francesco Griffolini of Arezzo translated the Odyssey of Homer into Latin at the behest of Pope Pius II. In contrast to the most important of his predecessors in the field of Homer translation, Leontius Pilatus, who was still completely committed to the medieval method of literal translation, Griffolini made use of the skills acquired from the masters of humanist Latin and created a prose text which also appealed to classical criteria. This volume offers a critical text of this Odyssey translation edited on the basis of the manuscripts. The extensive introduction provides information about the life and work of Francesco Griffolini, examines his method of translation and clarifies the manuscript transmission of the text. The edition represents a contribution to the history of Homer translation in the Italian renaissance and forms an important basis for further study of the reception of Homer in humanism."--Publisher's website
