Product Description


`an important and often engaging study' Religious Studies Review

`The book's strength is that it does approach weighty theoretical questions in a readable and organized way' The Classical Outlook

`Scholars of philosophy of literature will be most attracted to this volume's sustained and disciplined argument' The Classical Outlook

`This is a thought-provoking book, much of which involves a close reconstruction of Homeric 'poetics' and its relatinship to a larger Homeric model of psychological experience.' P. J. Rhodes, Greece and Rome

`An important and often engaging study. Of interest primarily to professional Homerists and specialists in the history of literary aesthetics.' S.Douglas Olsen, Religious Studies Review Vol.25 No.4
