About

Overview

The Homer Encyclopedia represents the first comprehensive reference work encompassing the world and artistry of the legendary Greek poet Homer. The Encyclopedia includes in-depth coverage of Homers world, the historical and cultural background of the Iliad and the Odyssey, Homeric scholarship, and the reception of Homer in education, literature, and art from antiquity to the present day, including the Early Christian, Jewish, and Arabic traditions. The roughly 130 contributors to this indispensable three-volume set include both established authorities who have already made lasting contributions to Homeric studies and up and coming Homeric scholars who bring fresh insights and perspectives.  The entries are as multifaceted as the Homeric poems themselves, representing a diversity of trends and opinions in the ever-vibrant field of Homeric scholarship. Breathtaking in scope and scholarship, the Homer Encyclopedia is the definitive reference source for students and scholars of Homer.
