9780199590070: The Making of the Iliad: Disquisition and Analytical Commentary

The Making of the Iliad is intended for readers who have some knowledge of Greek and of Homer. After introductory chapters on the poet of the Iliad's date and homeland, the poetic traditions known to him, the way in which his work developed, and its early reception, Martin West provides a running commentary on the epic, distinguishing the different stages of the poet's workings, illuminating his aims and methods, and identifying techniques and motifs derived from ancestral Indo-European tradition or imported from the Near East.

M. L. West is Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford

Review:


"Anyone who reads or teaches the poem will come away with a deeper sense of the structure and fullness of the work, whether or not the analytical hypotheses are accepted. West's close and sustained attention to the text abounds in exciting perspectives and cannot fail to refresh the poem for Homerists of any stripe."--Andrew Ford, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
