Homer: Iliad I Summary

Homer: Iliad I by Homer

Iliad I provides the commentary and student aids lacking in larger volumes of Homer's work. It contains a full Introduction designed to highlight the most important features of the text. There are sections on the Iliad and its qualities, the Homeric question, dating, oriental influences, style, gods, men, the transmission of the text, the scholia, the epic dialect, and metre. The Commentary, as well as containing material addressed to advanced readers, is also designed to be accessible to those who are new to Homer. To this end, Greek quotations in the Introduction and Commentary are translated, and technical discussions are marked off in square brackets (beginners may pass over them if they wish). The Greek text of Iliad I is printed with a facing English translation of a literal kind, primarily intended to help beginners to construe the Greek and there is also a full vocabulary list.

Homer: Iliad I Reviews

This commentary is a welcome addition to the scholarly literature, and will undoubtedly serve its intended audience very well indeed. * Hermathena: A Trinity College Dublin Review *
Pulleyn's horizons are broad, his linguistic foundation impeccable, his enthusiasm and appreciation of Homer's art everywhere evident ... a great deal of hard work and hard thought has gone into this edition, which deserves to be widely used. * Hermathena: A Trinity College Dublin Review *
Pulleyn's intended readership are undergraduate students and readers who come to Homer for the first time after having been reared on Attic language and literature. These readers will certainly profit from Pulleyn's reliable translation and his thorough treatment of Homeric syntax ... the commentary offers much useful guidance in reading the original text. Readers will also profit from Pulleyn's full introduction, which addresses many of the long-standing problems of Homeric scholarship ... will be useful to readers wishing to tackle liad 1 in the original language. * Journal of Hellenic Studies *
Informative introduction and rich commentary. * Greece & Rome *
