Editorial Reviews


"With this slender volume I.J.F. de Jong offers a commentary that is deeply thoughtful and scholarly, but also accessible and economical in its format. It offers a teaching tool useful at the undergraduate and early graduate levels of study, since it provides not only detailed guidance for reading book 22, but also an introduction to the Iliadas a whole. Moreover, the interpretive insights offered throughout the volume will be useful to readers and scholars at any level." --BMCR

Book Description

Edition suitable for students and scholars of this climactic book in the epic poem featuring the fatal encounter between Hector and Achilles. The introduction summarises central debates in Homeric scholarship while the commentary offers up-to-date linguistic guidance, and elucidates narrative techniques, typical elements and central themes.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After a long hiatus, I have begun to read ancient Greek again, starting with the Symposium and Books 6 and 22 of the Iliad. I have read them with the editions in the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. I have found the introductions and commentaries of all three to be intelligent, insightful, and erudite guides; literarily, grammatically and (in the case of the Symposium) philosophically.
