Abstract

DE NOVIS LIBRIS IUDICIA S. P ulleyn , Homer Iliad 1 . Edited with an Introduction, Translation, and Commentary. Oxford, Oxford University Press, 2000. xi, 304 p. This is an elementary commentary intended for Ž rst time or slightly advanced students of Homer, which includes a literal translation and an alphabetical vocabulary. The comments in general adequately explain Homeric morphology and syntax and discuss matters of interpretation. As is only to be expected of a commentary of modest dimensions, the choice of comments re ects the interests of the author, who must decide how to use the space allotted to him. Hence, we Ž nd thorough dis- cussions of all religious aspects, but hardly any discussion of type-scenes or other aspects of structure.

As it is, they are supposed to work through two pages on the epithet Sminyeè (134-5) or even three on AÞyiop°aw (229-31), but are nowhere informed about the structure and dynamics of an assembly-scene, which takes up the greater part of book 1. Pulleyn also goes into considerable detail where the
