Título: Homer: Odyssey XIII and XIV
Editorial: Cambridge University Press
Condición del libro: New
Tipo de libro: Paperback
The second part of the Odyssey takes epic in new directions, giving very significant roles to people of 'lower status' and their way of life: epic notions of the primacy of the aristocrat and of the achievements of the Trojan War are submitted to scrutiny. Books XIII-XIV contain some of the subtlest human exchanges in the poem, as Athena and Odysseus spar with each other and Odysseus tests the quiet patience of his swineherd Eumaeus. The principal themes and narrative structures, especially of disguise and recognition, which the second part uses with remarkable economy, are established here. The Introduction discusses these topics, and offers a detailed historical account of the Homeric dialect and remarks on metre; the Commentary pays particular attention to the exposition of unfamiliar linguistic forms and constructions. The literary parts of the Introduction and of the commentary are accessible to all.Book Description:
New edition suitable for upper-level students. The Introduction illustrates the books' compositional subtleties, engagement with the Trojan War and novel interest in 'unepic' people and affairs; and offers an introduction to the dialect and metre and to the text. The Commentary pays full attention to literary-critical and linguistic matters.
