For the complete set, Volumes 1 & 2 are under Alfred Heubeck, Volume 3 is under Joseph Russo.This first book of a three-volume commentary compiled by an international team of scholars includes an introduction discussing previous research on the Odyssey, its relation to the Iliad, the epic dialect, and the transmission of the text."Will find eager interest among scholars and teachers. ... The bibliography, general introduction, and breadth of commentary should... make this the standard work on the Odyssey for the next generation. Strongly recommended for public, college, and university collections."--Choice"This Oxford Commentary represents ... the new catholicism in Homeric studies. ... They have given us a new guidebook to the Odyssey marked by good sense and the exactitude for which British scholarship is renowned. ... Stocked with information on the most disparate topics and with copious citations of modern scholarship, this Commentary will be a valuable aid for readers of the Odyssey for years to come."--Arion"A tremendously important text, and will certainly become a standard reference. ... A definite "must-buy" for any good college or university library, and for many individual specialists as well."--Classical World"Eminently clear and controlled ... based on up-to-date linguistic, papyrological, and formulaic scholarship."--Journal of Hellenic Studies"Reason to rejoice and be grateful and await the forthcoming volumes with impatience."--Classical Review
