9781870612043: The Bending of the Bow: A Version of the Closing Books of Homer's Odyssey with Images by Dine

A tremendously vital retelling of the closing books in The Odyssey, this should find wide readership among students, teachers, and general readers. The images are reproduced from the drawings Jim Dine made in 1987-88 from Greek and Roman statuary at the Glyptotek Museum in Munich. ""The pairing of image and word is amazingly close"" - Print Collector's Newsletter. ""Moves easily and quickly - racy and amusing"" - Orbis.

About the Author:

Neil Curry was born in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1937 and now lives at Ulverston in the Lake District. After reading English at Bristol University, he taught at the University of Guelph in Canada and at secondary schools in England. His verse translations of Euripides, published by Methuen and Cambridge University Press, and in the USA by Doubleday, have been performed in may countries. Enitharmon has published his two earlier collections of poetry, Ships in Bottles (1988), a Poetry Book Society Recommendation, and Walking to Santiago (1992), a sequence inspired by the poet's 500-mile journey along the Pilgrim Road from the Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostela.
