    The Iliad & The Odyssey

    Homer

    While Homer's existence as a historical person is still a topic of debate, the writings attributed to the name have made their mark not only on Greek history and literature, but upon western civilization itself. Homer's epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, laid the foundation upon which Ancient Greece developed not only its culture, but its societal values, religious beliefs, and practice of warfare as well.
    This publication features the Samuel Butler translation, and while it strays from the poetic style reproduced by more well known translators like Robert Fagles and Robert Fitzgerald, the vision of the epics as if they were prose found in modern novels take their best form under Butler's most capable hand.

    mehrbuch-Weltliteratur! eBooks, die nie in Vergessenheit geraten sollten.
    Die Odyssee neben der Ilias das zweite traditionell dem griechischen Dichter Homer zugeschriebene Epos, gehört zu den ältesten und einflussreichsten Dichtungen der abendländischen Literatur. In Schriftform wurde das Werk erstmals wahrscheinlich um die Wende vom 8. zum 7. Jahrhundert v. Chr. festgehalten. Es schildert die Abenteuer des Königs Odysseus von Ithaka und seiner Gefährten auf der Heimkehr aus dem Trojanischen Krieg. In vielen Sprachen ist der Begriff «Odyssee» zum Synonym für eine lange Irrfahrt geworden.

    Ilias und Odyssee

    Homer

    »Ilias« und »Odyssee« haben zahlreiche Künstler zu bildlichen Nachschöpfungen inspiriert. Nur wenige haben sich jedoch an umfangreichere Zyklen gewagt. Zu diesen zählt der englische Bildhauer und Zeichner John Flaxman (1755-1826), der 1793 eine der außergewöhnlichsten Bildfolgen zu Homers Epen schuf. Seine Umrisszeichnungen erinnern in ihrem klassizistischen Stil an antike Vasenmalereien. Durch den bewussten Verzicht auf Farbe und die Betonung der Linie gelangen Flaxman ausdrucksstarke Illustrationen, die bis heute seinen Ruhm begründen. Mit dieser bibliophilen Neuausgabe im originalen Querformat liegt nach mehr als 100 Jahren erstmals wieder der vollständige Zyklus mit den dazugehörigen Gesängen vor. Die Texte werden in der klassischen Übersetzung von Flaxmans deutschem Zeitgenossen Johann Heinrich Voß wiedergeben. Abgerundet wird der Band von einer fundierten Einleitung zu Künstler und Werk sowie einzelnen Illustrationen.

    Homer & Hesiod

    Homer

    The Iliad and the Odyssey, along with the two poems of Hesiod, Theogony and Works and Days, comprised the major foundations of the Greek literary tradition that would continue into the Classical, Hellenistic, and Roman periods. The Iliad is set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy by a coalition of Greek kingdoms. It focuses on a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles lasting a few weeks during the last year of the war. The Odyssey focuses on the ten-year journey home of Odysseus, king of Ithaca, after the fall of Troy. The Theogony is commonly considered Hesiod's earliest work. It concerns the origins of the world (cosmogony) and of the gods (theogony), beginning with Chaos, Gaia, Tartarus and Eros, and shows a special interest in genealogy. The Works and Days is a poem of over 800 lines which revolves around two general truths: labour is the universal lot of Man, but he who is willing to work will get by.
