The Argonautika

The Argonautika

Peter Green


The Argonautika, the single surviving epic of the Hellenistic period, is a retelling of the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece, probably the oldest extant Greek fantasy. Peter Green's vigorous, readable verse translation captures the fast narrative flow of Apollonios's epic Greek. This multiplied paperback version comprises Green's incisive statement, advent, and glossary.

Alternate spelling: Argonautica, Apollonius Rhodius
