Overview

Jason and the Golden Fleece: The Argonautica by Apollonius of Rhodes

This is a new translation of the only extant Greek epic poem to bridge the gap between Homer and late antiquity. A major critical re-evaluation of the poem is now under way among classicists and scholars in the field of comparative literature. This volume offers the first scholarly translation into English for many years, combining readability with accuracy and an attention to detail that will be helpful to readers both with and without Greek. The explanatory notes and accompanying maps provide all necessary background information to enjoy the poem, while a comprehensive introductory essay situates the poem in its cultural and historical context.
