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!

This take on the story of Achilles and Patroclus is done beautifully and full of passion, fear, love and every other emotion. The story is told by Patroclus and follows him as the companion of Achilles and the hardships they face throughout their lives. I recommend this to anyone who loves love stories and/or Greek mythology. ... This take on the story of Achilles and Patroclus is done beautifully and full of passion, fear, love and every other emotion. The story is told by Patroclus and follows him as the companion of Achilles and the hardships they face throughout their lives. I recommend this to anyone who loves love stories and/or Greek mythology. I'd advice you to keep tissues around because this is one of the five books that made me cry. Madeline Miller is talented writer and her writing style is something I haven't seen before. Will definitely read her other books too.
