The World of Odysseus (New York Review Books Classics Series): M.I. Finley,Bernard Knox: 97815901701

Book Description:

September 30, 2002 New York Review Books Classics Series
The World of Odysseus is a concise and penetrating account of the society that gave birth to the Iliad and the Odyssey--a book that provides a vivid picture of the Greek Dark Ages, its men and women, works and days, morals and values. Long celebrated as a pathbreaking achievement in the social history of the ancient world, M.I. Finley's brilliant study remains, as classicist Bernard Knox notes in his introduction to this new edition, "as indispensable to the professional as it is accessible to the general reader"--a fundamental companion for students of Homer and Homeric Greece.

Publication Date: September 30, 2011"Exacting Encounters" investigates a disruption of the effort in realism to organize the world into already secured categories by the emergence of objectivity, which obstructs the capacity of early Victorians to correlate the world to themselves. Rather than understand this rupture as the cause of some irreparable crises of the subject brought on by an "end" of representation, my dissertation argues that the encounter with irregularity fixes the attention of early realists who respond to the particularity of their worlds with an experimental realism that e...
