Product description

Review

"Consistently fascinating, an amalgam of the mythic and the modern with an occasion dash of Baron Munchausen or Marvel Comics."
--Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World
"An accessible, nimble, and often beautiful edition of Apollonios Rhodios's epic."
--Tor.com
"At every turn, Poochigian...improves on every English-language translation of the Argonautica that's come before him.

--Open Letters Monthly
"Aaron Poochigian's new translation of Apollonius of Rhodes' Jason & the Argonauts demands to be read aloud--lines of perfect, unforced iambic pentameter make it as lyrical as Shelley or Frost."
--Smartish Pace

About the Author

Apollonius of Rhodes' fame rests solely on the Argonautica, the first version of which appeared sometime in the middle of the third century B.C. After a period spent on the island of Rhodes, he returned to his native Alexandria and became director of the famous library there.

Aaron Poochigian is a lecturer in Classics at The Ohio State University. He has translated Sappho, Aeschylus and Aratus, and his original poems have appeared in numerous journals.

Benjamin Acosta-Hughes is Professor of Greek and Latin at The Ohio State University.
