Beschreibung

"At once a scholar's homage to The Iliad and startlingly original work of art by an incredibly talented new novelist....A book I could not put down.”
—Ann Patchett

"Mary Renault lives again!” declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller's thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer's enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller's monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction's brightest lights—and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCullough's Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.

Madeline Miller grew up in Philadelphia, has bachelor's and master's degrees in Latin and Ancient Greek from Brown University, and has been teaching both languages for the past nine years. She has also studied at the Yale School of Drama, specializing in adapting classical tales for a modern audience. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The Song of Achilles is her first novel.

Madeline Miller knows what she is writing about, but nevertheless excels at adding her own fictional element to the myth without it feeling forced.

Das Leben des Achilles wird hier aus Sicht seines Gefährten Patroclus erzählt. Bildgewaltig und doch liebevoll beschrieben wird die bekannte Geschichte des Trojanischen Krieges widergegeben. Dabei werden Beweggründe aufgezeigt und Zusammenhänge verdeutlicht. Einige der größten Helden der Geschichte sind plötzlich zum Greifen nah!

Absolutely amazing.

Ever since I first read this book, "the Song of Achilles" has been one of my favourites. Achilles's story is told by Patroclus, his dearest friend and - in this instance - lover. His retelling of a well-known story is heartfelt and full of love and emotion. It conveys the pain and love between them in a way that I hardly imagined possible. The characters are not perfect and aware of this, something rarely found in a book like this. The narrative might seem simple at first but it hits just the right notes in my opinion. After all it is a retelling of an old myth. And the language in those often is simple and slightly more precise than it would be nowadays. I absolutely recommend this book to everyone who wants a wonderful story that will pull on your heartstrings and will send your emotions on a beautiful roller-coaster of love and pain.
