              Gripping...Lombardo's achievement is all the more striking when you consider the difficulties of his task...[He] manages to be respectful of Homer's dire spirit while providing on nearly every page some wonderfully fresh refashioning of his Greek. The result is a vivid and disarm...ingly hardbitten reworking of a great classic. --Daniel Mendelsohn, The New York Times Book Review

              Lazarillo de Tormes and The Grifter (El Buscon): Two Novels of the Low Life in Golden Age Spain

              Lazarillo de Tormes and The Grifter (El Buscon): Two Novels of the Low Life in Golden Age Spain (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited and translated by Frye, David; By de Quevedo, Francisco; Anonymous

              An elegant, precise, and accessible modern-English rendering of the two best examples of the early modern picaresque genre: the paradigmatic Lazarillo de Tormes and Quevedo' mordant El Buscon . Frye' translations are triumphant, capturing the cadence of popular early modern speec...h while remaining faithful to the original texts; his notes illuminate the diverse contexts in which the texts were written. Frye gives careful attention throughout to the historical background that propelled these two parallel but different monuments of Golden Age Spanish literature. --Teofilo Ruiz, UCLA

              Le Morte D'Arthur
               

              Le Morte D'Arthur (Library Binding)

              By Malory, Thomas; Edited by Glaser, Joseph

              This brisk retelling of Le Morte D'rthur highlights the narrative drive, humor, and poignancy of Sir Thomas Malory's original while updating his fifteenth-century English and selectively pruning over-elaborate passages that can try the patience of modern readers. The result is an... adaptation that readers can enjoy as a fresh approach to Malory' sprawling masterpiece. The book' most famous episodes--the sword in the stone, the cataclysmic final battle--are all here, while lesser-known key episodes stand forth with new brightness and clarity. The text is accompanied by an up-to-date bibliography, including websites and video resources, and a descriptive index keyed--like the retelling itself--to the book and chapter divisions of William Caxton' first printed edition of 1485.

              Tao Te Ching
               

              Tao Te Ching (Hardback, New edition)

              By Lao-Tzu; Translated by Addiss, Stephen; Lombardo, Stanley; Introduction by Watson, Burton

              Deftly introduced and enriched by the remarkable ink paintings of Stephen Addiss, this new translation of Tao Te Ching captures the terse and enigmatic beauty of the ancient original while resisting the tendency toward interpretive paraphrase found in many other editions. Along w...ith the translation of the complete work, Lombardo and Addiss provide the reader with a measure of interaction with the Chinese text found in no other edition, by furnishing one or more key lines from the original Chinese for each of the eighty-one sections, together with a transliteration of the Chinese characters. The appearance and sounds of the Chinese character displayed, enhance the reader's appreciation of how the Chinese text works and feels and the many different ways it can be translated into English.
