Description - Chapman's Homer by Homer
This volume presents George Chapman's original 1611 translation of Homer's epic poem "The Iliad". The text makes only a small number of modifications to punctuation and wording where they might confuse the modern reader, and provides an introduction, textual notes and a commentary. A preface explains how Chapman tapped into the poetic consonance between the semi-divine heroism of the Iliad's warriors, and the cosmological symbols of renaissance humanism.
