Summary/Abstract: A great introduction to reading the Iliad and the Odyssey. The author introduces her readers to the basic issues discussed and pointed out by Homerian critics: the problem of the poems' authorship, their special place in the history of Greek literature on the verge of oral and literal culture, the relationship between the heroic epic and historical realities. The author writes gracefully and knowledgeably within the spheres of critical-literary, religious-historical, and archaeological issues.
