9780199542857: Homer and the Odyssey

Who was Homer? This book takes us beyond the legends of the blind bard or the wandering poet to explore an author about whom nothing is known, except for his works. It offers a reading of the ancient biographies as clues to the reception of the Homeric poems in Antiquity and provides an introduction to the oral tradition which lay at the source of the Homeric epics. Above all, it takes us into the world of the Odyssey, a world that lies between history and fiction. It guides the reader through a poem which rivals the modern novel in its complexity, demonstrating the unity of the poem as a whole. It defines the many and varied figures of otherness by which the Greeks of the archaic period defined themselves and underlines the values promoted by the poem's depictions of men, women, and gods. Finally, it asks why, throughout the centuries from Homer to Kazantzakis and Joyce, the hero who never forgets his homeland and dreams constantly of return has never ceased to be the incarnation of what it is to be human.

This translation is a revised and much expanded version of the original French text, and includes a new chapter on the representation of women in the Odyssey and an updated bibliography.

About the Author:


Suzanne Saïd is Professor of Classics at Columbia University.

Review:


"Saïd carefully guides the reader between the classic's history and fiction, demonstrating its astonishing complexity and unity and defining the many figures of otherness by which the Greeks of the archaic period defined themselves. Highly recommended."--R. Cormier, CHOICE


"Saïd should be praised for writing an admirably balanced, informative, and thought-provoking introduction to the Odyssey. It is perhaps no exaggeration to say that his book marks a step ahead from other relevant attempts, since it masterfully avoids extreme positions that would trouble the inexperienced reader, without at the same time becoming simplistic and unsophisticated."--Christos Tsagalis, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
