Short summaries between books bridge the narrative and aid the student in gaining a comprehensive view of the Iliadas a work of literature and art. Invaluable resources include an extensive section of notes on the text, a short Homeric grammar, and a vocabulary and Greek index. In a new foreword, Mark W.
