About this title

Synopsis:

David J. Melnick published the first book of Men in Aida, a homophonic, but also homoeroticized translation of Homer’s epic Iliad, in December 1983 in an edition of 450 at Tuumba Press. After appearing in many guises and fragments, Book Two was published online in 2002 as part of the Eclipse Archive. Book Three appears for the first time in the present publication, which brings together all three books of one of the most important American avant-garde poems. According to Sean Gurd, who wrote the introduction to this unified edition: “The labor of more than 20 years, Men in Aïda filters the sound of Homer’s Iliad through the words and phraseology of English. Far more than an exercise in homophonic translation, David J. Melnick’s epoch-marking poem packs thousands of years of linguistic history into three riotous books.”
