Excerpt from Selections From Homer's Iliad: With an Introduction, Notes, a Short Homeric Grammar and a Vocabulary The notes have been adapted to the practical needs of the student. They also contain material which it is hoped will prove interesting in itself and stimulative to further reading. I have, of course, examined the ancient Scholia, which have a peculiar interest on account of their antiquity and literary traditions, and I have made many excerpts from them. I have examined, too, the leading modern editions of the Iliad, and to all of them I acknowledge my indebted ness. I have found particularly useful the standard Ger man'editions, and the edition by the Dutch scholars Van Leeuwen and Da Costa, all of Which are mentioned in the Bibliography (pages xxxiv, xxxv).

An accessible Iliad for twenty-first-century readers A classic of Western literature for three millennia, Homer’s Iliad captivates modern readers—as it did ancient listeners—with its tale of gods and warriors at the siege of Troy. Now Herbert Jordan’s line-for-line translation brilliantly renders the original Greek into English blank verse—the poetic form most closely resembling our spoken language. Raising the bar set by Richmond Lattimore in 1951, Jordan employs a pleasing five-beat meter and avoids unnecessary filler. Whereas other verse renditions are longer than the original, owing to the translators’ indulgence in personal poetics, Jordan avoids “line inflation.” The result, an economical translation, captures the force and vigor of the original poem. E. Christian Kopff’s introduction to this volume sets the stage and credits Jordan with conveying the action and movement of the Iliad in “contemporary language and a supple verse.” This new Iliad offers twenty-first-century readers the thrill of a timeless epic and affords instructors a much-needed alternative for literature surveys.

Approaches to Homer's 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey' consists of ten original essays on the Iliad and Odyssey by established Homeric scholars and university professors of Greek literature and culture. The anthology offers not only fresh approaches to reading, appreciating, and understanding these Homeric epics, but also attempts to make a case why these works are still relevant in the twenty-first century. Both epics are required reading in most college/university general and world literature courses, as is evident from their inclusion in part or in whole in many standard world literature anthologies. These ten new approaches to the first literary works of Western culture are intended as reading aids for both instructors and students in any college/university classroom in which either of these two Homeric epics are taught.
