"The first great adventure story in the Western canon, The Odyssey is a poem about violence and the aftermath of war; about wealth, poverty, and power; about marriage and family; about travelers, hospitality, and the yearning for home. In this fresh, authoritative version--the first English translation of The Odyssey by a woman--this stirring tale of shipwrecks, monsters, and magic comes alive in an entirely new way. Written in iambic pentameter verse and a vivid, contemporary idiom, this engrossing translation matches the number of lines in the Greek original, thus striding at Homer's sprightly pace and singing with a voice that echoes Homer's music. Wilson's Odyssey captures the beauty and enchantment of this ancient poem as well as the suspense and drama of its narrative. Its characters are unforgettable, from the cunning goddess Athena, whose interventions guide and protect the hero, to the awkward teenage son, Telemachus, who struggles to achieve adulthood and find his father; from the cautious, clever, and miserable Penelope, who somehow keeps clamoring suitors at bay during her husband's long absence, to the "complicated" hero himself, a man of many disguises, many tricks, and many moods, who emerges in this translation as a more fully rounded human being than ever before. A fascinating introduction provides an informative overview of the Bronze Age milieu that produced the epic, the major themes of the poem, the controversies about its origins, and the unparalleled scope of its impact and influence. Maps drawn especially for this volume, a pronunciation glossary, and extensive notes and summaries of each book make this an Odyssey that will be treasured by a new generation of scholars, students, and general readers alike."--Publisher's description
The Iliad by Homer( )

178 editions published between 1736 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 9,790 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

HOMER, The works assigned to Homer include the earliest and greatest European epic poems, but nothing is known of their Greek author (if not authors) unless it is that his country was Ionia in Asia Minor. To the ancients Homeric poetry at first was all the old epics, especially about Thebes and Troy; then 'Homer' was credited only with the Iliad and the Odyssey which we still have, and some minor poems of which we include Homeric Hymns in the volume containing Hesoid. The 24 books of the Iliad concern the 'anger of Achilles' during the war of the Greeks against Troy, extending from Achilles' quarrel with Agamemnon to the burial of Hector. The Odyssey presents the fortunes of Odysseus and his son Telamachus after the fall of Troy, and Odysseus' return home to Ithaca and his revenge on the rapacious suitors of his wife Penelope. It would require a book to list the work of scholarship done on these marvellous narratives of which part at least of the greatness can be suggested in translation

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

6 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,096 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
Homer's Odyssey by Homerus( Book )

108 editions published between 1810 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For George Chapman (1559-1634) his translation of Homer was 'the work that I was born to do'. The publication of his Iliad and Odyssey together in 1616 was a landmark in English literature, but until now there has been no edition which modernises his spelling and punctuation and also provides detailed help in grasping his often obscure language, and in understanding how and why he translated Homer in the particular way he did. This edition of the Odyssey, a companion to Robert Miola's edition of the Iliad, aims to bring Chapman's rendering alive for the modern reader. Its literary, philosophical, and religious context is explained in an Introduction and in footnotes, and side- and end-glosses clarify Chapman's English. His Odyssey is not only a stylistic masterpiece of seventeenth-century English: it constitutes a profound and moving interpretation - still relevant after four hundred years - of Homer's story of the suffering and grace implicit in the human condition. Through its teeming diversity of events, settings, and characters Homer and his first English translator explore the question of what it means to be human in a complex and threatening world

Since Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913) no comprehensive, scholarly commentary of Homer's Iliad has been published in German. In the meantime considerable progress has been made in many traditional areas of Homeric studies (language, realia, structure etc.). In addition, generally acknowledged new fields such as narratology have been systematically studied. Furthermore, the knowledge of the Mycenaean language (Linear B) and oral poetry provide completely new possibilities of textual constitution and analysis. Using the old Ameis-Hentze-Cauer as a starting point, the new commentary reflects the cu

Der vorliegende Text wurde aus Martin L. Wests Ilias-Edition in der Bibliotheca scriptorum Graecorum et Romanorum Teubneriana (Stuttgart/Leipzig/München 1998/2000) übernommen. Für die Belange des Kommentars hat Martin West den apparatus criticus neu gestaltet und die wichtigsten Hinweise zur Textgestaltung im untenstehenden Abschnitt 'Orthographisches' (S. X-XVI) zusammengefaßt; der Testimonien-Apparat konnte hier entfallen. Einen Abriß der Überlieferungsgeschichte bietet das Kapitel 'Zur Geschichte des Textes' (GT) im Prolegomena-Band. - Eine typographische Besonderheit der vorliegenden Ausgabe stellt die Hervorhebung der direkten Reden durch Kursivsatz dar. Damit wird dem 'Fokalisations'-Unterschied zwischen Erzähler-Text und Figuren-Sprache Rechnung getragen, dem im Kommentar besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt wird (s. dazu das Prolegomena-Kapitel 'Homerische Poetik in Stichwörtern' s.v. 'Sekundäre Fokalisation')
