Book Description: Allen Lane, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. One bumped corner else Fine. Very minor shelfwear to DJ. ; 528 pages; Oxford classicist [Robin Lane] Fox explores the 700s BCE, the century to which he imputes the composition of the Iliad and the Odyssey. Explaining that this was an era of cultural contact between Greeks—specifically, those from the island Euboea—and residents of the eastern littoral of the Mediterranean Sea, he delves deeply into the nature of that exchange. Aiming to evoke the Euboeans' mind-set, he springs from the archaeological traces of their settlements to the gods and heroes of the Near East they adapted into their own myths. While there is considerable textual explication of Homer and Hesiod involved in Fox's procedure, he pulls the mythical characters from the pages and places them in the physical landscapes with which the Euboeans not only associated them but believed they actively inhabited. So doing lends the appealing impetus of travel writing to Fox's account that aids readers in absorbing the world of pagan belief. Bookseller Inventory # 7531
