As of 12417 this book is erroneously listed as being the same as the Elizabeth Jeffreys version There are different versions of Digenes Akrites and there are different scholarly editions and translations What follows is an older review I wrote for the Mavrogordato translation Digenes Akrites is the name that Mavrogordato has given to this Medieval Greek take on the Hellenistic romance and it is also the name of the main character Although his proper name is Basil he earns the title Digenes Akrites for his actions Mavrogordato translates this as the twyborn borderer in that he had a Saracen father and a Byzantine mother The Akrites part refers to a class of soldier that grew up on the Eastern frontier around Armenia and Cappadocia following the Arab conuest of Syria and Egypt They were tough and independent and Digenes seems to represent this admirably Although it is technically Byzantine literature in that it took place in what were marginally Byzantine lands the Empire of the Romans gets only the occasional mention At one point Digenes meets an Emperor Basil but whether this is Basil I or Basil II is unclear Mavrogordato argues for a mid 11th c composition on the basis of literary but the context of the story is uite probably two centuries earlier so it is difficult to sayIt is also difficult to say whether Digenes was based upon a real character Mavrogordato rejects this idea but there are some interesting non critical details that suggest that it may have some historical basis in reality For one Digenes wife s mother s husband is mentioned as being in exile but this point is largely irrelevant to the entire story The other is Digenes untimely death For a hero who secured the borders beat off an woman killed creatures single handedly and fought a bear at age 12 one would expect that he d have a much better death The eighth book describes his palace on the Euphrates and how all is well with brief interludes as each of his parents die However strangely enough Digenes feels some pains in his stomach after having a bath and dies shortly thereafter at a young age along with his wife Perhaps this is a reflection of the uncertainty of border life coupled with the major theme of the Hellenistic romance An important part of the Hellenistic romance is the idea of separation between the lovers and all sorts of travel although eventually they are together Although they have their fortified palace on the Euphrates when Digenes gets sick the Girl she is always referred to as Kore prays that she will join him in death and they die together While it is impossible to prove that this is a rather world weary take on the Hellenistic romance it is an interesting ideaAs for this particular edition it is uite good Mavrogordato has a 70 page introduction discussing manuscript variants the story and its variants and the scholars of those who worked on the text before he did The Greek text is clean and easy to read and with some vocabulary help shouldn t pose much difficulty to students with only limited Greek The translation is uite literal While I m normally fond of literal translations considering that this is verse Mavrogordato may take it a little too far at certain points There are times where the English just makes very little sense However this is a minor caveat as most of the text is easy to read and understand The reason that this edition gets four stars is because Mavrogordato took the title Digenes Akrites a little too far Something along the lines of Digenes Akrites The Grottaferrata Text would be accurate because this is primarily that text However the entire Akritic cycle has a good number of variants with significant differences which are still awaiting publication While Mavrogordato notes these at times in the critical apparatus and in the introduction this particular text is still based upon that one versionThis is an excellent readable edition of one of the variants of the Akritic Cycle While it provides some interesting information on the Byzantine eastern frontier and the development of Greek literature it is a good enough read to stand on its own and is thus highly recommended Chancey of
