D. S. Carne-Ross (1921-2010) was one of the finest critics of classical literature in English translation after Arnold. More than four decades of Carne-Ross's writings are represented in this volume, which includes criticism of both ancient and modern writers, in addition to historical-critical studies of translation, discriminating analyses of translators widely read today, and investigations in the relationship between translation, criticism, and literary creation. This book will appeal to a wide audience including classicists, specialists in reception and translation studies, students of comparative literature, and literary readers. Two chapters give readings of the Odyssey and the Oresteia; others focus on significant and influential translators of those works. Two long essays give extended accounts of two of the most widely read twentieth-century translators of Greek and Latin, Robert Fitzgerald and Richmond Lattimore; there are also incisive studies of translations by H.D., David Ferry, Christopher Logue and others. Some essays focus on a particular work, author, or genre in translation, for example, Pindar's Pythian 12, Horace, Greek tragedy, and Greek epigram. The first and the final chapters use translation as a point of departure in order to investigate questions about transfers between ancient and modern literatures. In all the essays, translated works are considered in their relation to Greek or Roman literature and also as contributions to English literature, as a source of innovation for it, or as a way of laying bare connections between past and present moments.

Students reading the Iliad for the first time are often bewildered by the sheer volume of information on apparently unrelated subjects contained in it. The central narrative seems to unfold very slowly, and to be complicated by long speeches containing stories which might be interesting in themselves, but which seem to have no relevance to anything else. In this book Dr Alden offers advice on how to read the Iliad through the relationship of major paradigms to the events of the main narrative. The first section offers the first full-length study in English of the paradigmatic functions of secondary narratives and minor-key episodes in the Iliad. None of these are irrelevant or merely ornamental: rather each is carefully selected and altered if necessary, to reflect on significant episodes of the main narrative and act as guides to its interpretation. The second section offers a general reading of the Iliad arising out of Phoenix's advice to Achilles in Book 9. The allegory of the Prayers illustrates the dire consequences of rejecting prayers, and the paradigm of Meleager presents us with an instance of an angry hero to whom prayers and entreaties are addressed, whilst the primary narrative confines this motif of prayers and entreaties in ascending scale of affection to Achilles and Hector and contrasts their responses. Both heroes suffer terribly for their rejection of entreaties.

Where does Homer come from? And why does Homer matter? His epic poems of war and suffering can still speak to us of the role of destiny in life, of cruelty, of humanity and its frailty, but why they do is a mystery. How can we be so intimate with something so distant?
