The Odyssey


THE ODYSSEY, which tells of Odysseus's long voyage home after the battle of Troy, is one of the defining masterpieces of Western literature. Populated by one-eyed man-eating giants, beautiful seductive goddesses, and lavishly hospitable kings and queens, it is an extraordinary work of the imagination, the original epic voyage into the unknown that has inspired other writing down through the ages - from ancient poems to modern fiction and films. With its consummately modern hero, full of guile and wit, THE ODYSSEY is perfectly suited to our times. Thanks to the scholarship and poetic power of the highly acclaimed Stephen Mitchell, this new translation recreates the energy and simplicity, the speed, the grace, and continual thrust and pull of the original, so that THE ODYSSEY's ancient story bursts vividly into new life.

The Iliad


The heroic story of the siege of Troy is as enthralling today as it ever was. The Greeks are entering the tenth year of their war with the Trojans, but their armies are fractured and their best warrior Achilles has abandoned the battle on a mission of revenge. Only the death of his best friend Patroclus persuades Achilles to return to battle and confront the Trojan leader Hector in single combat. The Iliad is the oldest surviving work of Western literature and provides a powerful glimpse into the horrors and heroics of war - a message which undoubtedly endures today. This collector's edition, presented in a handsome slipcase, provides an accessible prose translation by the classical scholar and novelist Samuel Butler. Butler is considered one of the finest English writers of the late Victorian era, and his translation one of the most accessible and satisfying.

The Iliad


One of the greatest epics in Western literature, THE ILIAD recounts the story of the Trojan wars. This timeless poem still vividly conveys the horror and heroism of men and gods battling amidst devastation and destruction, as it moves to its tragic conclusion. In his introduction, Bernard Knox observes that although the violence of the Iliad is grim and relentless, it co-exists with both images of civilized life and a poignant yearning for peace.

Ilias


O autorovi (podle některých teorií i autorech) Odysseie a Iliady nic nevíme, a přesto zůstává jméno Homér ve světové literatuře jedním z nejznámějších a příběhy jeho dvou eposů inspirovaly a stále inspirují nespočetnou řadu literátů a umělců. Ilias líčí závěr trójské války. Poté co uražený Achilleus odmítá účastnit se dalších bojů, se zdá, že Řekové, obléhající již desátý rok hradby mocné Tróje, utrpí porážku. Když ale padne Achilleův přítel Patroklos, nejslavnější hrdina antické mytologie se vrací do boje a s jeho pomocí je o pádu Tróje definitivně rozhodnuto. Narozdíl od Otmara Vaňorného a Rudolfa Mertlíka – autorů dvou kompletních překladů Iliady – použil Vladimír Šrámek volného verše. Klasičtí filologové měli k tomuto přístupu výhrady, ale přesto oceňovali básnickou krásu jeho překladu.

L´lliade


Quand commence l'Iliade, il y a dix ans que les Grecs occupent le rivage et combattent les Troyens pour la beauté d'une femme et les trésors d'une ville. Mais Achille s'est retiré de sa baraque : la colère l'emporte, il ne se battra plus. Aussitôt les Troyens descendant dans la plaine, conduits par Hector. Les navires flambent ; les boucliers, les lances, les cuirasses de bronze se heurtent terriblement. Ainsi s'accomplit la volonté de Zeus. Ce bruit formidable de bataille et la douleur de qui pleure ses morts, l'Iliade les fait entendre depuis près de trois mille ans.

L'Iliade


Tout commence par une banale dispute entre déesses : Athéna, Héra et Aphrodite convoitent la pomme d'or. Pâris, prince troyen arbitre de leur querelle, décrete que la pomme revient a Aphrodite, qui lui offre l'amour d'Hélene, la plus belle des mortelles. Pâris l'enleve et l'emmene a Troie... Le chef-d'oeuvre d'Homere dans la traduction de Leconte de Lisle, abrégée et remaniée a partir du texte grec.
