Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Apocalypse (1st-2nd century C.E.) is attributed to John of Patmos. It is revealed by a succession of angels, asserting that God will intervene decisively in the present evil age and reward his long-suffering elect. Reflecting the Roman occupation and oppression of the Jews, and influenced by the apocalyptic writings in the Old Testament's Book of Daniel, The Apocalypse is the great epic poetic work of the New Testament. As the translator Willis Barnstone puts it, "Like the Book of Job, The Apocalypse is an extended poem, as densely poetic as Blake's Jerusalem, Whitman's Leaves of Grass, or Gerard Manley Hopkins's The Wreck of the Deutschland". Here reissued in a Bibelot edition, it is rendered in blank verse, remarkably translated by Willis Barnstone, the distinguished scholar, translator, and poet.
