Etukansi
Cambridge University Press, 25.4.2002 - 285 sivua
How was the poet Homer imagined by ancient Greeks? This book looks at stories circulating between the sixth and fourth centuries BC about his birth, his name and place of origin, his date, the circumstances of his life, such as the story of his blindness, his relation to other poets and his heirs. The aim is to get closer to the ancient reception of the Homeric poems, and to look at it in relation to modern representations of Homer, ancient and modern conceptions of authorship, and the 'HomericQuestion'.
