Gareth Hinds con The Iliad

Críticas In his latest graphic novel adaptation of a classic text, Hinds (The Odyssey) condenses Homer's epic poem of gods and mortals at war, covering most of the major events and adding supplemental material that expands the story slightly beyond the original...The most striking scenes are the battles, presented in intimate detail and in awe-inspiring, sweeping overviews. Hinds's relatively plain language retains just enough meter to hint at the cadences of the work, and, together with the dynamic art, creates an accessible entrée to an enduring classic.--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Clear scaffolding, well-chosen abridgements, readable prose, and stunning art invite readers into this exceptionally compelling version of the episode of the Trojan War handed down through Homer's Iliad...Readers who have struggled to follow the poetry of the standard text or to become emotionally invested in a summary will have no such difficulty here; Hinds has truly produced an easy-to-follow, engrossingly cinematic blockbuster on the page.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review) ""Sing to me, O Muse, of the rage of Achilles"": a rousing graphic rendition of Homer's great epic...An expertly crafted rendition and a welcome invitation to younger readers to immerse themselves in the ancient past.--Kirkus Reviews This modern graphic novel retelling of Homer's epic immediately draws in readers with its artistry and readability...This is a well-done adaptation of an important, thought-provoking poem.--School Library Connection As with his treatment of The Odyssey (rev. 11/10), Hinds offers an ambitious and compelling comics adaptation of a Homerian epic...By highlighting the efforts of the goddesses, along with amending Helen's understanding of her role in the war, Hinds makes an effort to address the story's inherent hypermasculinity, reminding readers that ""the war is the work of angry gods and angry men.""--The Horn Book Arrestingly, Mr. Hinds depicts the meddling immortals in translucent, sugary Easter-egg colors. This initially whimsical-seeming decision has the effect of highlighting the mocking distance between the fickle, impulsive Olympians and the flesh-and-blood men and women who pay the price for divine caprice on the earth below...Those who know the epic will find an engrossing and rewarding account: gory, affecting, unforgettable.--The Wall Street Journal Unpacking 'The Iliad' as a reader is one thing; adapting it for comics is a hurdle of a different magnitude. Enter Gareth Hinds, the Vermont-born artist who has reworked literary classics from Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe and more. His magnificently realized graphic telling of 'The Iliad' -- in its wealth of muted watercolored hues and evocative landscapes -- condenses a more than 20-book-length poem into 251 pages of narrative comics. It follows an equally sweeping interpretation of ""The Odyssey,"" which had a loose, sketchbook-style look as compared with its spiffy successor.--Los Angeles Times This is no mere comics adaptation of an ancient classic. Through his intricately illustrated panels, Gareth Hinds brings us The Iliad's depth, brutality, and power. A Herculean effort worthy of the original.--Gene Luen Yang, Michael L. Printz Award winner for American Born Chinese With his graphic novel retelling of The Iliad, Gareth Hinds has created a work of such scope and power that it boggles my mind. It truly lives up to the -- dare I say it -- epic scale of the original poem.--George O'Connor, author of the New York Times best-selling Olympians series Reseña del editor In a companion volume to his award-winning adaptation of The Odyssey, the incomparable graphic novelist Gareth Hinds masterfully adapts Homer’s classic wartime epic. More than three thousand years ago, two armies faced each other in an epic battle that rewrote history and came to be known as the Trojan War. The Iliad, Homer's legendary account of this nine-year ordeal, is considered the greatest war story of all time and one of the most important works of Western literature. In this stunning graphic novel adaptation — a thoroughly researched and artfully rendered masterwork — renowned illustrator Gareth Hinds captures all the grim glory of Homer's epic. Dynamic illustrations take readers directly to the plains of Troy, into the battle itself, and lay bare the complex emotions of the men, women, and gods whose struggles fueled the war and determined its outcome. This companion volume to Hinds’s award-winning adaptation of The Odyssey features notes, maps, a cast of characters, and other tools to help readers understand all the action and drama of Homer's epic.
