Editorial Reviews

Review

'[Macleod's] extraordinary success in catering for users at very different levels (including those who know no Greek) is characteristic of the whole work, and it is likely to exercise an influence far greater than its relatively modest appearance would, at first sight, suggest.' The Times Literary Supplement

'[This book] must be the most rewarding scholarly commentary in English on Homer. While informed by much learning, articulated with great precision, it is essentially literary-critical ... Macleod's interpretation is deeply humane, and ... contains much to admire, including pointed comparisons with later literature ... and some sensitive extended discussions ... All in all, Macleod's volume is a pleasure to work with ...' Greece and Rome

More About the Author

Homer was probably born around 725BC on the Coast of Asia Minor, now the coast of Turkey, but then really a part of Greece. Homer was the first Greek writer whose work survives.

He was one of a long line of bards, or poets, who worked in the oral tradition. Homer and other bards of the time could recite, or chant, long epic poems.
