Papers have been selected for their clarity and accessibility, and each is informed by close attention to philological and textual detail. A full glossary andlist of abbreviations have been included, and a specially written Introduction puts the selections in a wider context by giving an overview of major strands in the interpretation of Homer in the second half of the twentieth century.
