Approaches to Homer’s «Iliad» and «Odyssey»

Series:

Edited By Kostas Myrsiades

These ten new approaches to the first literary works of Western culture are intended as reading aids for both instructors and students in any college/university classroom in which either of these two Homeric epics are taught.
