This is one of the most remarkable translations of an ancient Greek text ever made. Scrupulously faithful to every line of Homer's text, its language nonetheless sings & moves, evoking the mythic imagination of ancient Greece in a manner rarely captured before. By avoiding the conventions of academic style which afflict so many classical translators, Charles Boer's verse delivers for us the world of Homer's Gods & Goddesses as a fresh & stunning experience. Since 1972, this version of the Homeric Hymns - nominated for a National Book Award - has been acclaimed by the critics & public alike and has widely established itself as a classroom text. "Thanks to Charles Boer's scrupulous & loving respect for Greek religious experience & his own superb verse, we can see again a landscape that was always there, but which had unaccountably & inexcusably vanished from view..."--William Arrowsmith.Homer is the author of 'The Homeric Hymns (Dunquin Series)', published 1996 under ISBN 9780882142104 and ISBN 0882142100.
