Durham, Donald Blythe. [Achilles Tatius, fl. 4th century BC]  
Parody in Achilles Tatius.

Publisher: offprint, Classical Philology XXXIII: 1, January 1938.
19 p., 24 cm. "The casual reader of the Greek romances finds them for the most part... similar even to the point of monotony. Most of them present a beautiful, exceedingly virtuous heroine and a perfect hero... a closer examination reveals the fact that the characters of Achilles Tatius [Greek rhetorician; wrote the romance 'Leucippe and Cleitophon'] behave in strange ways... It is the belief of the present writer that... finding the idealism of his predecessors insipid he ridicules it by parody." Stapled without covers; corners soft, light soiling; good.

Publisher: N.Y., Harcourt, Brace [c1936].
5 p.l., 91 p., 1 l., 22 cm. The first collaboration of these talented translators. "Our object was to make the 'Alcestis' clear and credible in English. Since it is a poem, it had to be made clear as a poem; and since it is a play, it had to be made credible as a play. We set for ourselves no fixed rules of translation or of dramatic verse: often we found the best English equivalent in a literalness which extended to the texture and rhythm of the Greek phrasing; at other times we were forced to a more or less free paraphrase..."

To achieve this end, Mr. Cook has produced a translation that follows the original line for line-- even to the preservation of important key phrases at the beginnings of the lines. He has evolved a verse line that runs rapidly and easily, thus capturing one of the special virtues of Homer’s style...

Publisher: W. W. Norton, NY [c1974]. A Norton Critical Edition.
Translated and Edited by Albert Cook. xi, 516 p.; 21 cm. "This new translation of the Odyssey has been widely acclaimed by the critics for its faithfulness to Homer’s original. It attempts to render the poem not only literally, but line by line, so that almost always the expressions in a given line of Greek are those in the corresponding English line. It also adheres to the ‘formulaic’ character of the poem that so many commentators stress today. Mr. Cook has accepted fully the modern understanding that the Homeric poems are oral (not written) compositions, and has reproduced the qualities of that oral style in English."
