About the Author

Homer is the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. These epics representthe beginning of the Western canon, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature.

Garry Wills, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lincoln at Gettysburg, studied for the priesthood, took his doctorate in the classics, and taught Greek for many years at Johns Hopkins University. He has written many acclaimed works on religion, including two New York Times bestsellers. Wills is professor emeritus of history at Northwestern University.

Reviews

Nicoll's gently modernised edition of Chapman's Homer [is] a work to be admired, bought, even read right through. . . . This cheap reprint of a scarce and very good edition of a great work is a thing to be welcomed.---Colin Burrow, London Review of Books
