Homer's Odyssey Paperback / softback
Edited by Lillian Eileen Doherty
Part of the Oxford Readings in Classical Studies series
This volume assembles sixteen authoritative articles on Homer's Odyssey that have appeared over the last thirty years.
A wide variety of interpretative strategies are represented, including, in addition to traditional close readings, the approaches of comparative anthropology, narratology, feminism, and audience-oriented criticism. Papers have been selected for their clarity and accessibility, and each is informed by close attention to philological andtextual detail.
A full glossary and list of abbreviations have been included, and a specially written introduction puts the selections in a wider context by giving an overview of major strands in the interpretation of Homer in the second half of the twentieth century.
