A true work of scholarly investigation,
This review is from: The World of Odysseus (Paperback)
This book is a seminal work in the discussion of the historical world that is depicted by the Homeric epics, providing not only an informative text, but also exstensive footnotes and bibliographies.
I found M. I. Finley's work to be an essential starting point for my research on this subject, and this distinguished scholars experiance opens up many lines of enquiry for the modern student.
Well worth reading.

This review was written nearly a decade ago and research in this field has progressed since it was written. I suggest that readers look to see what else is also now available.
