Frederick Ahl - Works

Works

In addition to his several books, Ahl has published articles on topics including ancient Greek music, Homeric narrative, rhetoric in antiquity, and Latin poetry of the Roman imperial period.

In his book Sophocles' Oedipus (1991), Ahl argues that the Oedipus of Sophocles’ play is not actually guilty. Oedipus' conclusion that he is guilty is not actually confirmed by the information in the play itself and that the audience's belief in Oedipus' guilt is based on the audience's outside knowledge of the myth.

In 2007, Ahl published a translation of Virgil's Aeneid into English hexameter, with a paperback edition in Summer 2008. He is the editor of the series of translations under the rubric "Masters of Latin Literature."

Famous quotes containing the word works:

    Do not worry about the incarnation of ideas. If you are a poet, your works will contain them without your knowledge—they will be both moral and national if you follow your inspiration freely.
    Vissarion Belinsky (1810–1848)

    Are you there, Africa with the bulging chest and oblong thigh? Sulking Africa, wrought of iron, in the fire, Africa of the millions of royal slaves, deported Africa, drifting continent, are you there? Slowly you vanish, you withdraw into the past, into the tales of castaways, colonial museums, the works of scholars.
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)

    The works of women are symbolical.
    We sew, sew, prick our fingers, dull our sight,
    Producing what? A pair of slippers, sir,
    To put on when you’re weary or a stool
    To stumble over and vex you ... “curse that stool!”
    Or else at best, a cushion, where you lean
    And sleep, and dream of something we are not,
    But would be for your sake. Alas, alas!
    This hurts most, this ... that, after all, we are paid
    The worth of our work, perhaps.
    Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–1861)
