Item Description: Viking Press / Penguin Group (USA), New York, London, Victoria, Auckland, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. CLASSIC, INDISENSABLE: FINE First Edition hardcover (orig. 1996), 3rd printing (c. 1998) as shown by the printed no. line on the title page, fine unclipped mylar-protected unpriced jacket, excellent new raw-silk-finish white-linen-over-boards cover w/ sharp new edges & slightly bumped corners & w/ twin dolphins stamped white-on white on lower corner of the front panel & titles handsomely stamped in copper-gold on spine, excellent text-block exterior w/ smooth-cut top & bottom edges (w/ top stained carmine red) & cut-page deckle side-edging, excellent sewn binding w/ tight signatures & black cloth bands at spine-caps & white silk page-marker ribbon, handsome brown-on-tan frieze-bordered end-papers, impeccable new interior printed w/ exceptional clarity & elegance on excellent paper w/ line-numbering at intervals of 10 in the right margins of the texts, an extended & extremely valuable 62 pp. introduction, an extended note on the spelling & pronunciation of Homeric names, & w/ maps illustrative of Homeric geography showing (1) Mainland Greece, (2) the Peloponnese & (3) the Aegean & Asia Minor w/ an inset of Troy & its Vicinity * NOTES: translator's postscript (489), genealogies (497), textual variations from the Oxford Classical Text (501), notes on the translation (503), suggestions for further reading (507) & pronouncing glossary (521) * 6.50" x 9.40", 1.02 kg, x+541 (551) pp. * If the Iliad is the world's greatest war story, then the Odyssey is literature's grandest evocation of Everyman's journey through life. Odysseus' reliance on his wit & wiliness for survival in his encounters w/ divine & natural forces is at once the human story & an individual test of moral endurance. In the myths & legends that are magnificently retold here, Fagles has captured the energy & poetry of Homer's original in a bold, contemporary idiom & given us an Odyssey to read aloud, to savor & to treasure for its sheer lyrical mastery. Renowned classicist Bernard Knox's superb introduction & textual commentary provide new insights & background information for the general reader & scholar, intensifying the strength of Fagles' translation. This is an Odyssey to delight both the classicist & the public at large, & to captivate a new generation of Homer's students. * Robert Fagles, the winner of the PEN-Ralph Mannheim Medal for Translation & an Academy Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts & Letters, is Arthur W. Marks '19 Professor of Comparative Literature, Emeritus, at Princeton University & received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Yale University. * Bernard Knox is Director Emeritus of Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C. * "Fagles' 'Odyssey' is a splendid companion piece to his memorable English version of the 'Iliad'. He has managed to create a poetic style that combines the pungency of modern colloquial English w/ a timeless dignity. The sensory values of Odysseus' archaic world, the snap of sails, the scud of sea-foam & the gleam of burnished bronze come wonderfully alive in this supple, rhythmic English" - Robert Alter, University of California, Berkeley.
