Description


This book traces common themes in Homer's The Iliad and klepht poetry, the folk songs of the Greek war of independence from the Ottomans. New translations of Klepht poems are given, including the poem that Goethe translated.The male totem has been energizing and guiding males, and civilization, through the ages; this has been the backbone of history. In our times, the male totem is riding majestically across all continents, staging the same act it staged in the Iliad and in klepht songs.
