Basically deals with the question, "Who was Homer?". The book does so by examining ancient as well as modern approaches to the question. While, at times technical, all quotations from non-English sources have been translated, making the book easy to read.

Nathan or you could've just said: "It's an easy to read book about Homer." :)

Kyle Technically, it's not easy to read. The easy to read part refers to the fact that non-English quotes(Greek, German, Italian, etc) are translated.

Nathan then you could've said: "It's technical sometimes, but the translated quotes are a breeze."

Kyle I could have, but I didn't.
