"A highly accessible book infused with sharp considerations of the 'first teacher' of Greece and of the epics' enduring power, provenance, and influence not only on antiquity and the Middle Ages, but on the modern world."
Graziosi (Classics/Durham Univ.; The Gods of Olympus: A History
, 2014, etc.) delivers an excellent guide, rendered with both academic rigor and clarity, to understanding the Iliad
and the Odyssey
as well as their putative author.
