'With fair-tressed Demeter, the sacred goddess, my song begins, With herself and her slim-ankled daughter, whom Aidoneus once Abducted...' Most people are familiar, at least by repute, with the two great epics of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey, but few are aware that other poems survive that were attributed to Homer in ancient times. The Homeric Hymns are now known to be the work of various poets working in the same tradition, probably during the seventh and sixth centuries BC.

Produktbeschreibung
'With fair-tressed Demeter, the sacred goddess, my song begins, With herself and her slim-ankled daughter, whom Aidoneus once Abducted...' Most people are familiar, at least by repute, with the two great epics of Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey, but few are aware that other poems survive that were attributed to Homer in ancient times. The Homeric Hymns are now known to be the work of various poets working in the same tradition, probably during the seventh and sixth centuries BC. They honour the Greek gods, and recount some of the most attractive of the Greek myths. Four of them (Hymns 2-5) stand out by reason of their length and quality. The Hymn to Demeter tells what happened when Hades, lord of the dead, abducted Persephone, Demeter's daughter. The Hymn to Apollo describes Apollo's birth and the foundation of his Delphic oracle. In the Hymn to Hermes Apollo's cattle are stolen by a felonious infant - Hermes, god of thieves. In the Hymn to Aphrodite the goddess of love herself becomes infatuated with a mortal man, the Trojan prince Ankhises. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Autorenporträt
Homer ist der erste namentlich bekannte Dichter der griechischen Antike. Er lebte vermutlich gegen Ende des 8. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. in den von Griechen kolonisierten Gebieten Kleinasiens und gilt als Schöpfer der ältesten Werke der abendländischen Literatur: der Ilias, der Odyssee und der Homerischen Hymnen. Schon in der Antike wurde über Homers Person und Herkunft diskutiert: Smyrna, Athen, Ithaka, Pylos, Kolophon, Argos und Chios beanspruchten, als sein Geburtsort zu gelten. Über sein Leben ist wenig Genaues bekannt. Die ersten sicheren literarischen Zeugen sind Pindar, Heraklit und Simonides. Wahrscheinlich zog er als fahrender Sänger (Rhapsode) von Hof zu Hof und trug seine Lieder und epischen Dichtungen dem adligen Publikum vor. Armut und Blindheit werden ihm zugeschrieben, seine Teilnahme am Sängerkrieg in Chalkis und sein Tod auf Ios bleiben Vermutung.

Notes
Rezensionen
This welcome new translation of the Homeric Hymns offers a skilled and nuanced verse rendering that is accompanied by intelligent and helpful notes. The introductory material is brief; the end-notes more thorough yet always concise; throughout there is frequent and up-to-date reference to important bibliography on the hymns. Readers should find the translation poetic and often striking, and they will also come away with a firm sense of modern scholarship on these short epic works. Journal of Hellenic Studies
