Homer -Readings and Images

£9.99

Product description

There is a remarkable convergence of academic and popular interest today in Homer. The Homeric poems provide a unique focus for the study of war and peace, tradition and values, and problems in a wide range of disciplines from anthropology and social theory to archaeology and literary criticism.
By its topicality and breadth of approach the book breaks new ground in exploring these aspects of Homeric studies. It not only reflects the scope of current Homeric studies but also attempts to place it in its historical context - to explain how the study of Homer has developed over the last number of years and to account for its contemporary vitality.
This book was produced to form part of the teaching material for an Open University course Homer: Poetry and Society
