Prolegomena to Homer, 1795 by F. A Wolf( )

145 editions published between 1795 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 2,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The German classical philologist Friedrich August Wolf (1759-1824) developed a holistic approach which deeply influenced modern classical studies. In this 1795 treatise, he argues that the poems attributed to Homer were composed orally and that, prior to their transcription, they were altered by editors and performers in order to appeal to contemporary audiences, only coming together in their apparent artistic unity once they had been written down. Like many scholars of his day, seeking to reach an international audience, Wolf wrote in Latin here. And although he may have intended to address further questions relating to the Homeric epics, only this volume was ever published. Radical at the time, the arguments presented here now form the foundation of modern Homeric scholarship, shedding light on the composition, performance, transmission and evolution of ancient poetry
The Iliad by Homer( Book )

57 editions published between 1785 and 1918 in 5 languages and held by 248 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

Reiter schon selbst mehrere Berichtigungen aufgenommen. Keiner Rechtferti gung bedarf wohl der Abdruck einer in Rudolf Sellheims Notizen gefundenen ausführlichen Begründung seiner evident richtigen Deutung einer von Reiter ver kehrt aufgelösten Abkürzung (S. 80f.). Meine, Berichtigungen zum Textteil des Ergänzungsbandes' (S. 89f.) beruhen auf erneuter Durchsicht des Reitersehen Manuskripts. Beim Korrekturenlesen, aber auch durch eigene Anregungen und kritische Hinweise hat mich Herr Privatdozent Dr. Nesselrath unterstützt. Gleichzeitig mit diesem neuen, die Erläuterungen enthaltenden Teilband erscheint ein unveränderter Nachdruck des Textteils. In seinem Vorwort findet der Leser den Bericht über Siegfried Reiters furchtbares Schicksal. Mit der Auf nahme seines nachgelassenen Werks in die Schriften der Rheinisch-Westfälischen Akademie wird eine Pietätspflicht an einem großen Gelehrten erfüllt.
