Description - Iliad by Homer
"Iliad VI" makes ideal reading for a student approaching the epic for the first time. Amongst other episodes it includes the meeting of Diomedes and Glaukos in battle, which throws light on the ethics of epic warfare; and the touching scene of Hektor's final parting from his wife Andromache and baby son Astyanax. This illustrated edition includes text with notes on the facing page, introduction and select bibliography of further reading. There are also short appendices introducing the forms of Homeric dialect with their Attic equivalents, prepositional usages in Homer, Homeric formulae, and scansion of the hexameter. A consolidated vocabulary and glossary of proper names follow - in sum all the basic material needed for early Greek learners to tackle their first book of Homer with confidence and understanding.
