Product Description

Review

"From time to time there appear Homeric studies that speak to a wide range of readers . . . "Nature and Culture in the Iliad" is in that company. It opened up new prespective on the poem and its poet and remains as stimulating today as when it first appeared."—James Tatum, Dartmouth College

"A fine reading of the" Iliad" [and] a pioneering attempt to apply the insights and methods of cultural anthropology to the warrior culture of the poem. . . ."—Charles Segal, Harvard University

"Redfield's memorable study of the literary and cultural values of Homer's "Iliad" shines with wisdom and humanity on every page. I know of no other work on the epic that so consistently reaches this level of insight and inspiration."—Fromma Zeitlin, Princeton University

Format: Paperback
It is difficult to find books that offer something new about the Iliad, this one does. It focuses on Hector and the how Achilles takes him to the limits of society and cluture. Full of scholarship and very entertaining.
