correction 25 Sep 2013
By C. Seaquist - Published on Amazon.com
Just to update Brendan's review: this is the Teubner critical edition of the Odyssey, originally published in 1946. So yes, it's in the original Greek. According to Stanford's 1947 review in Classical Review (I don't have a copy of Mühll's edition, I just use Allen's), this edition isn't based on a fresh collation of the manuscripts, though it does incorporate readings from some recent papyri. The apparatus is sparse, but includes the major textual variants. There are idiosynracies in the decisions that determine what forms are used in the text, as is generally the case. Digamma is used in the apparatus, but not the text itself.

The Saur/de Gruyter website describes this as a text suitable for the classroom, in contrast to the recent edition of the Iliad by West, which is a truly scholarly edition.

Excellent for the Greek Scholars 14 Oct 2005
By Brendan - Published on Amazon.com
Now, as someone with a Greek vocabulary of approximately 30 words, I find that this is a very intimidating book. All of the notes are in Latin, which I understand moderately well, and all of the text is in Greek, which I don't. Additionally, the font this book is typed in maked lower case theta look slightly like an upside-down delta until I realized what it actually was.

But, for someone with a high degree of confidence in Greek and Latin, this is an excellent text. It doesn't have unnecessary notes lining the bottoms of every page (As far as I can tell, they're just variants that different editors or copyists have published.)Other than the business with theta and possibly an issue with digammas (I haven't come across any yet, so I can't be sure), the text is clear and easy to read, with plenty of punctuation.

I give this two thumbs up, and will probably purchase a copy for myself once I've got more experience with the language.
