By Elizabeth Jeffreys

"Digenis Akritis" is Byzantium's in basic terms epic poem, telling of the exploits of a heroic warrior of "double descent" at the frontiers among Byzantine and Arab territory in Asia Minor within the 9th and 10th centuries. It survives in part in six types, of which the 2 oldest are edited the following. This version and translation goals to focus on the character of the misplaced poem, and to supply a consultant in the course of the maze of modern discussions concerning the epic and its background.

found this experiment on-line, wiped clean it up somewhat: separated pages, a little bit straightened a few pages (tried tougher at the Greek pages), further Greek and English OCR, which seems to be lovely good--not excellent, obviously.

“Επαινοι και τρόπαια κατορθωμάτων

and that famed and nonetheless nice fortress,

and he subjugated the land by way of the sea.

from amazon reviewer Carlos:
Elizabeth Jeffreys' version of Digenis Akritas is a brilliant learn! She contains a clean translation of the 2 earliest manuscripts and gives beneficial footnotes for a reader unusual with the Byzantine historical past of the poem. The epic was once first written down within the 12th century, yet its tale happens in the course of the interval among the 8th and 10th centuries. i might certainly suggest somebody drawn to medieval literature to envision it out.

Basil Digenis Akritas (Basil the Half-Blood Border safeguard) is the most personality in Byzantium's maximum epic. Basil is an Akritai (border defend) at the frontiers of Cappadocia through the Arab-Byzantine Wars. His noble delivery through the daughter of a Strategos (Byzantine common) and an Arab Emir can in basic terms rivaled via his ridiculous exploits. He slays lions together with his naked fingers, hews horses in part with the stroke of a sword, and fights forces ten occasions his quantity with just a stick (Yep). Basil is rewarded with an imperial edict granting him sovereignty over new lands reconquered alongside the Euphrates. in fact our hero isn't ideal, Basil regardless of being married to a stunning (and noble) girl, falls into adultery two times. There are tricks of Classical Greece within the job of Eros within the narrative, a serpent that resembles a Hydra, and Basil's exploits are in comparison to Bellerophon and Hercules. yet in fact our epic is Byzantine, so there are demonic forces, angelic guardians, supplications to the mummy of God, recitations of the nicene creed, and a hymn to the consubstantiality of the Holy Trinity. in the event you cherished Beowulf, this may positioned a grin in your face. Cheers!
