More About the Author

Homer was probably born around 725BC on the Coast of Asia Minor, now the coast of Turkey, but then really a part of Greece. Homer was the first Greek writer whose work survives.

He was one of a long line of bards, or poets, who worked in the oral tradition. Homer and other bards of the time could recite, or chant, long epic poems.

Format: Hardcover
I have read the two earlier reviews. They are concerned with the Fitzgerald translation indicated as the "paperback" version of this edition. However, this edition (the Loeb Classical Library edition) is not by Fitzgerald but by A. T. Murray and is a prose translation as are all Loeb translations of classical poetry. Of course, the Fitzgerald translation is a monumental classic in its own right, but it is not the edition published by Loeb.

Even if you don't read Greek, you should be able to see what the original looks like alongside of a fine prose translation in English. My Ancient Greek is rusty, so I have found the accuracy of the English version of great help in re-entering this classic of world literature.

What is there to say? It's the classic parallel text version of Homer. One of the high points of Western scholarship.
