This survey gives a concise but detailed account of the present state of criticism of the two great epics ascribed to Homer, the Iliad and the Odyssey. Its main thrust is an examination of the poems in their own right, highlighting major issues such as the structure of the plots, the ethics of warfare, the nature of Homeric heroism, the functions of the gods, the relation between men and women, and the differences between the Odyssey and the Iliad.
