About Book

Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"A book that has changed the way I read the Iliad. . . . Not only useful and compelling, but also a pleasure to read."

Jenny Strauss Clay, Classical Journal
"This slender, even modest, volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of the Iliad by revealing the richness and the complexity of the background from which the poet shaped his narrative."

Book Description
