Available / dispatched within 1 - 2 weeks
As fewer and fewer people learn to read Ancient Greek, there is a need for a critical study of the most influential translations that have been made from the major works of ancient Greek literature. Mason's monograph offers a critical study of the translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey. It presents an argument for reading Alexander Pope's translation, his accompanying notes and his Essay on Criticism. Mason's new insights, along with his stringent comments will help bring readers closer to a real understanding of Homer, whether they read him in the original or come to him in translation for the first time.
