Product Description

Review

"This fine commentary, with text...is more than welcome, and is distinguished by a long introduction of ninety-five pages which is remarkable both for its quality and its completeness...This is an altogether admirable book, and one from which scholars at every level should benefit." Times Literary Supplement

Book Description

The poet's art is amply illustrated in this commentary on books XIX and XX, in which Odysseus, disguised as a beggar, spends the night in his own palace and lays plans for his awesome revenge. Extensive linguistic guidance is also provided for beginners.

HASH(0xb4010414) out of 5 stars and in so doing enable readers to appreciate better Homer's skillful manipulation of Greek social situations for dramatic ... Feb. 11 2015
By T. Buboc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a lucid and well-written commentary to Lattimore's translation. The introductions to each book set out the themes and problems readers will encounter and offer thoughtful suggestions for understanding the plot. The notes on specific passages and verses explain important concepts including xenia and sacrifice and the proper procedure for such rituals, and in so doing enable readers to appreciate better Homer's skillful manipulation of Greek social situations for dramatic effect. Jones's commentary also helped elucidate some of Lattimore's more obscure renderings such as "underthegn" at 4.386.

HASH(0xb369230c) out of 5 stars A Great Guide to The Odyssey Dec 1 2014
By R. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Terrific explication of The Odyssey; linked to Richmond Lattimore's translation, but unless you're specifically trying to follow that version, this has abundant and useful information about the poem that will inform your reading of any other translation.
