9780198147473: A Commentary on Homer's Odyssey: Volume I: Introduction and Books I-VIII: Introduction & Books 1-8 Vol 1 (Clarendon Paperbacks)

` the sheer range, penetration, authority, and readability of the notes to this volume make one's ears flap in purest gratitude; and the introductory essays to each book are models of incisive scholarship' The Times

From the reviews of the Italian edition: ` The commentary is eminently clear and controlled.... For clear exegesis of the text and discussion of problems both [West and Hainsworth] are admirable. We have the first fruits of the new edition of the Odyssey, based on up-to-date linguistic, papyrological, and formulaic scholarship.' M. M. Willcock, Journal of Hellenic Studies `The main part of the new book is without doubt the commentary. Here we have a work the richness, independence, and judiciousness of which cannot be sufficiently admired. It is not a replacement for ... other existing commentaries, but a continuation on a higher level. On page after page we meet sensible interpretations and an authoritative presentation of current scholarship with comprehensive bibliography covering all aspects of research.... We have reason to rejoice and be grateful and await the forthcoming volumes with impatience.' H. van Thiel, Classical Review

`What is so admirable about Oxford's new commentary on the Odyssey is that it provides pure protein in highly edible form: high scholarship has become haute cuisine.' Peter Jones, The Times

' models of clarity ... fascinating reading ... it presents a bracing challenge and you have to work to get at the genuine riches it contains' Martin Thorpe, Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, JACT Review

' The authors have made excellent use of the chance to improve what was already a first-class monument of useful scholarship, especially in adding cross-references, bibliography and indices ... this superb achievement will do much to stimulate Homeric scholarship.' Richard Janko, University of California, Los Angeles, Journal of Hellenic Studies, CX, 1990


"Will find eager interest among scholars and teachers....The bibliography, general introduction, and breadth of commentary should...make this the standard work on the Odyssey for the next generation. Strongly recommended for public, college, and university collections."--Choice

"This Oxford Commentary represents...the new catholicism in Homeric studies....They have given us a new guidebook to the Odyssey marked by good sense and the exactitude for which British scholarship is renowned....Stocked with information on the most disparate topics and with copious citations of modern scholarship, this Commentary will be a valuable aid for readers of the Odyssey for years to come."--Arion

"A tremendously important text, and will certainly become a standard reference....A definite "must-buy" for any good college or university library, and for many individual specialists as well."--Classical World

"Eminently clear and controlled...based on up-to-date linguistic, papyrological, and formulaic scholarship."--Journal of Hellenic Studies

"Reason to rejoice and be grateful and await the forthcoming volumes with impatience."--Classical Review
