Achilles Once Again Visits the Republic of Korea : An unconventional translation of Homer's Iliad
by Michael Klauke




Overview -

Achilles Once Again Visits the Republic of Korea is an epic poem of unexpected language and radical transformation, created by using an online translation program to filter a traditional translation of the Iliad through other languages and then back to English. The results are both surprising and humorous.

Less a new English version of Homer's seminal work than a grand-scale example of how modern technology can be manipulated for creative ends, this groundbreaking book has the power to both amuse and occasionally amaze. Never-seen phrases abound in virtually every stanza, giving readers an almost endless supply of opportunities to laugh, ponder, and marvel at the ways in which language can be manipulated and how their own imagination can be set free to explore new and unique avenues of thought.

Achilles Once Again Visits the Republic of Korea is beautifully designed by Doug Clouse and features a foreword by Craig Dworkin.
