9780882142104: The Homeric Hymns (Dunquin Series)

Boer’s translation, nominated for the National Book Award, has established itself like no other. This book, over 2000 years old, gives the earliest depiction of the divinities as individuals and evokes the Greek mythic imagination.

Scrupulously faithful to every line of the Homeric text, the language sings and moves, evoking the mythic imagination of the Gods and Goddesses in a manner rarely captured before. By avoiding the conventions of academic style, Boer's verse provides the ancient world as a fresh and stunning experience.
