Samenvatting


Praise for Peter Green's translation of The Odyssey: "Green brings to the poem the rhetorical directness and historical expertise which worked so well in his translation of The Iliad. Speeches in his version are vigorous and direct."--London Review of Books "An amazingly accessible translation for experienced or novice readers, a translation that conveys both the feeling and the sense of the original lyrical Greek. . . . eminently suitable for classroom use."--Choice "Comparisons to [Emily] Wilson's recent translation are inevitable. . . . Both Wilson and Green capture the spirit of the Odyssey, but word-for-word, Green also captures a feel for the Homeric language, an experience closer to the original."--Library Journal "Green's intelligent translation is . . . a superb choice."--The Weekly Standard Praise for Peter Green's translation of The Iliad: "Taken as a whole, this is the best line-for-line translation of the poem I know."--London Review of Books "Peter Green's particular merit lies in achieving a clarity and fluidity that carries the reader forward. A notable achievement."--Times Literary Supplement "[Green] gets the interpretation right without interrupting the forward motion that is always Homer's aim--and this is one of the great virtues of Green's translation as a whole: its limber fluency."--New York Review of Books
