Companion to The Iliad

Price: $6.50

Publisher: UNIV OF CHICAGO PR: 11/9/2011

Those who are able to read Homer in Greek have ample recourse to commentaries, but the vast majority who read the "Iliad" in translation have not been so well served--the many available translations contain few, if any, notes. For these readers, Malcolm M. Willcock provides a line-by-line commentary that explains the many factual details, mythological allusions, and Homeric conventions that a student or general reader could not be expected to bring to an initial encounter with the "Iliad." The notes, which always relate to particular lines in the text, have as their prime aim the simple, f... View more info

Keats

By: Keats, John/Motion, Andrew

Price: $5.00

ISBN: 0571172288

Condition: USED


Andrew Motion's dramatic narration of Keats's life is the first in a generation to take a fresh look at this great English Romantic poet. Unlike previous biographers, Motion pays close attention to the social and political worlds Keats inhabited. Making incisive use of the poet's inimitable letters, Motion presents a masterful account. "Motion has given us a new Keats, one who is skinned alive, a genius who wrote in a single month all the poems we cherish, a victim who was tormented by the best doctors of the age. . . . This portrait, stripped of its layers of varnish and restored to glowi... View more info

Toward the Open Field brings together many of the great prose pieces--essays, letters, declarations, defenses, manifestos, and apologia--by the most influential European and American poets from the Romantics to the Symbolists, Surrealists, and Moderns.
