Taken together, the essays in this book are a thematically interrelated series of incisive and meticulous forays into the poetics of the Homeric epics. Since most of them were previously available only in modern Greek and in rather inaccessible publications, we should be very grateful for their collection and translation in this volume, which an Index Locorum renders still more useful. -- James P.
