The Voyage of the Argo: The Argonautica of Gaius Valerius Flaccus

By Gaius Valerius Flaccus

Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1999 The story of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece is one of the oldest and most familiar tales in classical literature. Apollonius of Rhodes wrote the best-known version, in Greek, in the third century B.C.E. The Latin poet Gaius Valerius Flaccus began his own interpretation of the story in the first century of the Christian era, but he died before completing it. With The Voyage of the "Argo," the acclaimed poet and translator David Slavitt recovers for modern readers the only surviving work of this little-known writer. The result is an engaging rendition of Jason's adventures, of particular interest when compared to the Greek version of the story. While Apollonius' tale offers a subtle psychological study of Medea, Valerius Flaccus' achievement is to present Jason as a more complete and compelling heroic figure. Slavitt, for one, enjoyed the rediscovery immensely -- and he invites his readers to do the same.165p. Has shadow of price sticker on rear boards, else as new.. 1st US Edition.. Hardcover. Fine/No Jacket. Illus. by Translated David R Slavitt.
