The Odyssey, Books VI-VIII (Cambridge Greek And Latin Classics)
The Odyssey, Books VI-VIII (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics)
This is the first self-contained edition of Books VI-VIII of the Odyssey--the account of Odysseus' time among the Phaeacians, and a popular introduction to Homer. While not neglecting matters of language and formulaic composition, the Commentary aims to provide guidance on questions of literary and narrative technique and poetic artistry. The Introduction deals with the problem of Homeric composition in general, and with the place of the Phaeacian books in the poem as a whole. There are also brief sections on Homeric meter and the text.
"The book is an invaluable resource for students of Greek, providing fountains of well-considered knowledge throughout." David W. Frauenfelder, Asian Thought and Society
