This collection of essays in honor of Emily Vermeule is an invaluable source for the serious reader of Homer. A number of Homeric scholars contributed articles ranging in topic from archaeological to historical to literary. The book is divided into three parts: Homer and the Bronze Age: Memory and Archaeology, Homer and the Iron Age: History and Poetics, After Homer: Narrative and Representation. The articles cover such a wide variety of topics that this book provides a refreshing source to dip into for occasional reading over a long period of time. It makes a good bedside companion for the lover of Homer. For more articles and reviews about Homer and Troy go to www.judithstarkston.com
