With the Writers Edition, issued every year since 1992 (Ernest Hemingway) in a limited edition worldwide, Montblanc pays tribute to the greatest icons of literary history. Homer: the first and greatest poet of Antiquity. Homer is the first and greatest poet of antiquity.The Iliad is both the earliest example of Western poetry and one of the most important works of world literature. In it, Homer depicts the Greek siege of the city of Ilion (Troy). The Central theme of the epic is the wrath of Achilles. Around this theme, Homer tells the story of the Trojan War. The legendary spear of Achilles is the inspiration for the shape of the gold coated clip. The ten-year journey undertaken by the hero Odysseus, who was returning home from the Trojan War, is world-famous.
Homer's Odyssey, is characterized by a complex fusion of plot lines and artful flashbacks. In a short but famous episode, the Odyssey offers to an ingenious strategy employed by the Greeks in the Trojan War. A huge wooden horse concealing Greek Soldiers within was instrumental in their victory over the Trojans. The Trojan Horse, Odysseus's famous stratagem, is reflected in the edition's remarkable silhouette and engravings, depicting the head and body of the wooden horse in stylised form. Homer is regarded as the father of storytelling and rhetoric.
His use of metre and formulaic phrases can be traced back to precursors in the oral tradition. Ancient bards used rhythm and rhyme as tools to help them remember long texts. The strict form of the hexameter used by Homer gives the verse its firm structure. It consists of six'feet' of three syllables each, where by the sixth foot contains only two syllables. The finely engraved Greek meander frieze on the Au750 champagne-tone gold-plated fittings of the Writers Edition Homage to Homer is inspired by the sit-foot structure of the hexameter.
The edition, whose matt surface plays with the idea of the great poet's blindness is crowned by the Montblanc emblem in resin. This Homer Ballpoint Pen comes with all original boxes and papers.
