Th the prize for outrageous A word on the style The translator xplains where the Greek is awkward or dull he resists the temptation to amend in the English For a clumsy line he ll give you a clumsy line I believe this is correct of him It reads uite clumsily uite often that s the authentic xperience Original GreekEnglish translation on facing pages This is a story that was written around 900 years ago in the Byzantine mpire and I was Calling Home expecting it to be interesting at the very least as an insight on how these people thought It actually starts very promising by having as its hero an Arab meaning someone who was traditionally annemy of the Byzantines Unfortunately though that s the xtent of its merits as he simply falls in love with a christian girl he stole solely because of her beauty promising to her brothers that came to take her back that he hasn t xchanged a word with her Of course he and his family convert to Christianity and the one true GodAnd it only gets worse from there The child of this union Digenis is some kind of masculine fantasy that can kill hundreds of people alone and he has no problem raping women I am not really the kind of person who xpects art to be moral but I xpect it to be interesting and this one certainly isn t Maybe an interesting uestion from our perspective can be whether these stories were basically scapism like our video games meaning something that they would never do but a hero of a #fictional story could do or whether they were dreaming of doing it to an nemy if the chance arose History #story could do or whether they were dreaming of doing it to an nemy if the chance arose History to point to the second possibility Elizabeth Jeffreys provides a wealth of scholarship plus parallel Greek text for both Grottaferrata and Escorial The older Hull translation was a nice reference until this one showed up however this one is the definitive work of both the larger surviving manuscripts After a decade of using this I am still in awe of the scholarship it took to assemble this text.

version There different versions of Digenes Akrites and there are different scholarly ditions and translations What follows is an older review I wrote for the Mavrogordato translation Digenes Akrites is the name that Mavrogordato has given to this Medieval Greek take on the Hellenistic romance and it is also the name of the main character Although his proper name is Basil he arns the title Digenes Akrites for his actions Mavrogordato translates #THIS AS THE TWYBORN BORDERER IN #as the twyborn borderer in he had a Saracen father and a Byzantine mother The Akrites part refers to a class of soldier that grew up on the Eastern frontier around Armenia and Cappadocia follow This compares unfavorably with Gilgamesh The cultures that produced them were very different of course but Digenis Akritis just doesn t attain the same kind of universality as the other pic The story is also pisodic The subtitle to my dition is awesome though The Two Blood Border Lord Five stars because 1 It s not a bad story 2 it serves as a marker for the turning the clock back on women to Ancient Greece in the Byzantine Empire after the 12th Century and the Jeffreys translation is better than the Hull translation I know many people don t consider this cycle literature but they also hate puppies 11th century Byzantine pic or romance set on the The Lady in Pink eastern frontiers Arabs aren t thenemy so much as Eyes exnemy indeed the introduction claims the romance is a peace statement There s a lull where he slots in the poem the Arabian Wars at an nd the Seljuk Turks unbeknownst on the horizon Our hero has an Emir for a father who fell in love with his captive Byzantine girl and converted In spite of conversion the introduction presents the pic as free from fanaticism or political urgency without an agenda unless it be on.
