Présentation de l'éditeur

This English-Greek translation is interleaved in small sections allowing the student to quickly cross reference Greek terms to their English equivalents.

Greek term search can be quickly accomplished using the "Complete Liddell & Scott's Lexicon with Inflections" published by Handheldclassics.com and also available for the kindle.

The aim of the translator has been above all things faithfulness—faithfulness to the manner of expression and to the structure of sentences, as well as to the meaning of the Author.

G. C. Macaulay

Compiled from the following texts:

English:
The History of Herodotus
Translated into English by G. C. Macaulay, 1890

Greek:
Herodotos, Heinrich Stein, 1883

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice, but doesn't work with the lexicon 22 février 2013
Par Brian Ortner - Publié sur Amazon.com

Nice to have the Greek/English on the same page if you are having trouble with the translation. However, the statement "the Greek term search can be quickly accomplished using the "Complete Liddell & Scott's Lexicon with Inflections" published by Handheldclassics.com and also available for the kindle." Is false, at least on the Kindle Paperwhite.

Two stars for false advertising.

I purchased the lexicon and can tell the book tries to look up words if you try it on the "English" which, of course, it doesn't find (it indicates it is using the LSJ so the lexicon is installed properly and the book is correctly indicating it is Greek). However, when trying to bring up a parsing/definition for the Greek text "nothing" comes up, not even the dictionary indicating it could not find the word.

Otherwise I'd give it a 5 star rating if the parsing/lexicon was working.

This is a splendid ancient Greek text of the complete Histories of Herodotus (all nine books) with an accompanying English transation, for Kindle devices. The Kindle presents ten or twelve lines of Greek (depending on font size, of course) on the top half of each page, with the English version of the same passage usefully located on the lower half of the same page. Both Greek and English fonts are georgous on my Paperwhite, and they scale larger or smaller like the text of any normal Kindle book. In effect, we are offered a good alternative to multi-volume English-Greek printed texts, at a much lower cost and in a much smaller package! It's a pleasure to read this book on the Kindle, unlike many other e-books featuring ancient Greek words, sentences, or texts that, for one reason or another, can be quite difficult to make out.

In a few days of reading, I've spotted no obvious errors in the text of either language, and the translation is fairly literal - a useful crib for those focused primarily on the Greek text. The English text, of course, can just as well be read on its own. The Kindle's search function works as expected in English (once you allow sufficient time for this lengthy book to index itself on your machine). I don't have an onboard Greek dictionary, and no way to type in Greek, so I've not tested searches or look-ups in Greek.

The only flaw I've found is quite minor. The Table of Contents seems to end at Book 7. Books 8 and 9 are there, but I found it necessary to hunt them down manually. (To save you the trouble, the last two books begin at Locations 25031 and 27596, respectively.) I used the Kindle's highlight function to ensure I could return more conviently next time, simply by calling up the Highlights. So it's a small flaw with an easy fix.

After too many years, we now know it is possible for ancient Greek texts to come into their own on e-readers. From their website, it appears that the publisher's inspiration for this work was Heinrich Schliemann, who carried his texts with him everywhere, for use whenever he found a moment to read. This is certainly something that Herr Schliemann would have loved!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful tool for Greek readers 26 janvier 2014

Though very useful for someone working in Greek and needing the occasional word, the almost literal translation does not read that well if someone just wants the English. Lacks a vocabulary list but the notes are quite good. I appreciated the way the English translation follows after a paragraph of Greek. So it's not line by line but paragraph by paragraph.

If you not are looking for a literal 'translation' of the text, but a rather faithful rendition, then you will not be disappointment.
