The Odyssey (Translated by Fitzgerald)

The Odyssey (Translated by Fitzgerald)
$11.00
ISBN/SKU: 
0374525749

The classic translation of The Odyssey, now in paperback.

Robert Fitzgerald's translation of Homer's Odyssey is the best and best-loved modern translation of the greatest of all epic poems. Since 1961, this Odyssey has sold more than two million copies, and it is the standard translation for three generations of students and poets. Farrar, Straus and Giroux is delighted to publish a new edition of this classic work. Fitzgerald's supple verse is ideally suited to the story of Odysseus' long journey back to his wife and home after the Trojan War. Homer's tale of love, adventure, food and drink, sensual pleasure, and mortal danger reaches the English-language reader in all its glory.

Of the many translations published since World War II, only Fitzgerald's has won admiration as a great poem in English. The noted classicist D. S. Carne-Ross explains the many aspects of its artistry in his Introduction, written especially for this new edition.

This edition also features a map, a Glossary of Names and Places, and Fitzgerald's Postscript. Line drawings precede each book of the poem.

A Duchess, a Duke and their family of daughters.

Everything went smoothly and happily in this large family, until one day the Duchess decided to make:
A lovely light luscious delectable cake.

It is Gunhilde, the youngest of the daughters, who suggests a happy solution.

Photographer Edith Irvine and her maid, fifteen-year-old Daisy Valentine, are enroute to a photography exhibit in Europe when their travels are abruptly canceled. From a boat in the harbor, Edith, her father, and Daisy watch the San Francisco shoreline in horror...

."..something thumped our boat. Edith and I grabbed the rail. Mr. Irvine hugged Edith protectively and looked beyond the bow.

"See anything?" the captain called to his crew.

Before anyone could answer, we heard an ear-splitting boom, as if ten cannons had exploded. All heads turned toward shore. Immediately every light blacked out, darkening the city into a silhouette against the lightening sky.

"Papa, what's happened?"

A woman next to us screamed, then someone cried out the horrible word:

"Earthquake!"

Giving a voice to a lost generation, this edition features a new introduction by Brittain's biographer. Now a major motion picture starring Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Hayley Atwell, and Taron Egerton

Much of what we know and feel about the First World War we owe to Vera Brittain's elegiac yet unsparing book, which set a standard for memoirists from Martha Gellhorn to Lillian Hellman. Abandoning her studies at Oxford in 1915 to enlist as a nurse in the armed services, Brittain served in London, in Malta, and on the Western Front. By war's end she had lost virtually everyone she loved. Testament of Youth is both a record of what she lived through and an elegy for a vanished generation. Hailed by the Times Literary Suplement as a book that helped both form and define the mood of its time, it speaks to any generation that has been irrevocably changed by war.

This edition features a new introduction by Brittain's biographer examining her struggles to write about her experiences and the book's reception in England and America.

The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim.The book was written and published in early Victorian era Britain, a period when there was strong nostalgia for old Christmas traditions together with the introduction of new customs, such as Christmas trees and greeting cards. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales
