WHERE TROY ONCE STOOD., Wilkens, Iman.

Author Name    Wilkens, Iman.

Title   WHERE TROY ONCE STOOD.

Publisher    St. Martin's, New York, 1991, first U.S. edition.

Seller ID   22343

365 pp, large 8vo (9 7/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0312059949 Map endpapers, b&w maps, plans, drawings, reproductions. "Arguing, convincingly, that the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey' do not fit the topography, geology, climate, and oceanic tidal patterns of the eastern Mediterranean, Wilkens relocates the Homeric scene in western Europe and the northern Atlantic, revealing the precise site of Troy itself and the plain on which the Trojan War was fought. By examining the texts in det ail, Wilkens has identified over 400 place-names in western Europe and concludes that the original oral version was composed by Homer several hundred years before it was written down. He reveals that the Trojan War was fought on a far larger scale than previously thought, by Celts from regions as far apart as Scandinavia and Spain, and that the 'Odyssey' provided an oral map for illiterate Celtic seafarers - an extraordinary and enlightening journey into prehistory that is as exciting as the voyages of Odysseus. Thanks to Wilkens' patient detective work, many of the most puzzling aspects of Homer's epic poems now fall into place, enabling the reader - perhaps for the first time - to understand fully the meaning and significance of Euro pe's oldest literary masterpieces.' Very light dust soiling on top of textblock, minor soiling on bottom of textblock, very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, minor edge wear at corners and at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge w ear, very light edge wrinkling, light creasing at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds and at bottom of front flap, light rubbing to glossy surfaces, very small faint scuff on rear panel.
