Iliad: A Commentary: Volume 6, Books 21-24 by Nicholas Richardson
Book DescriptionThis is the sixth and final volume of the major Commentary on Homer's Iliad issued under the General Editorship of Professor G. S. Kirk. It consists of introductory chapters dealing with the structure and main themes of the poem, book division, the end of the Iliad in relation to the Odyssey, and the criticism and interpretation of the Homeric poems in antiquity. The commentary follows. (The Greek text is not included.) This volume contains a consolidated index of the Greek words in all six volumes.
