A very good paperback copy with previous owner's stamps to endpaper. - This is the third volume in the major six-volume Commentary on Homer's Iliad prepared under the General Editorship of Professor G. S. Kirk. It opens with two introductory chapters: the first on Homeric diction (on which emphasis is maintained throughout the Commentary); the second on the contributions that comparative studies have made to seeing the Homeric epics in sharper perspective. In the commentary Dr Hainsworth confronts in an intentionally even-handed manner the serious problems posed by the ninth, tenth and twelfth books of The Iliad, seeking by means of a succinct discussion and a brief bibliography of recent contributions to furnish the user with a point of entry into the often voluminous scholarship devoted to these questions. The Greek text is not included. Size: Octavo. 404 pages. Category: Literature & Literary; Language: Reference & General; Literature: history & criticism; Literary studies; ISBN: 0521281733. ISBN/EAN: 9780521281737. Dewey Code: 883.01.
