Homer on Life and Death by Jasper Griffin
Book DescriptionThis book demonstrates how Homeric poetry manages to confer significance on persons and actions, interpreting the world and the lives of the people who inhabit it. Taking central themes like characterization, death, and the gods, the author argues that current ideas of the limitations of "oral poetry" are unreal, and that Homer embodies a view of the world both unique and profound.

Virgil, Paperback (November 2001)
Virgil lived through the fall of the Roman Republic and the establishment of the Empire. This text studies his poems and the way they attempt to combine technical brilliance and beauty with profound meditation on the nature of imperialism and the relation of the individual to the State.
Homer, Paperback (November 2001)» View all books by Jasper Griffin
"The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" stand at the very beginning of Greek literature. This book is concerned with the ideas of these poems and shows that each of the two epics has its own coherent and suggestive view of the world and of man's place in it.
