    Goethe's Faust is possibly the most important drama in the German language, and many quotes have been adapted into colloquial usage and proverbial sayings. Goethe's tragedy has two parts, the first was published in and the second in Goethe's Faust character is distinguished from earlier variants by his rich inner complexity. A great book, one of my favourites; Roger Lancelyn Green really brings the magic of Ancient Greek mythology to life, but remains the friendly objective informer throughout (not unlike Homer). I think this book acts as both a fun and exciting read in itself (I first read this when I was about 8 and loved it), and as an informative precursor to /5(53).

      (Homer, Odyssey ) Euripides provides another version of the end of Helen’s life in his play Orestes. Pursued by her bloodthirsty nephew, Helen is rescued by the god Apollo and carried off to Olympus to reunite with her brothers, the Dioscuri, who have become the constellation Gemini. There, she is made an immortal goddess. Though I havent read it in many years, I could see its influence in The Book of Helen. Not only did the author do a great job of fleshing out Helen as more than a legend or myth while displaying her point of view on the events surrounding her life, but she captured the style similar to Homers poetic writings/5(9).

    In conclusion, Homer’s The Iliad characterizes Helen mainly through her own actions and words, and the words which others speak about her. Of course, there are other manners in which Helen’s character is broadened and made more lifelike, and these ways could be examined in a piece of sufficient length. The Iliad (/ ˈ ɪ l i ə d /; Ancient Greek: Ἰλιάς, Iliás, Attic Greek pronunciation: ; sometimes referred to as the Song of Ilion or Song of Ilium) is an ancient Greek epic poem in dactylic hexameter, traditionally attributed to during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy (Ilium) by a coalition of Greek states, it tells of the battles and events during the.

The origins of Helen's myth date back to the Mycenaean age. Her name first appears in the poems of Homer but scholars assume that such myths derive from earlier Mycenaean Greek sources.
