    Aims and Scope

    At the centre of the commentary on Book 19 of the Iliad is the interpretation of speeches and events at the assembly of the Achaean army. It is here that the argument between Achilles and Agamemnon was settled, thus enabling the Achaeans to take the field in the decisive battle against Hector and the Trojans.

    Marina Coray, University of Basel, Switzerland.


    "[...] this commentary is a wonderful resource for understanding Homer’s narrative strategies and formulaic art. [...] In sum, Coray’s achievement is exceptional, and this admirable translation of her volume will allow Anglophone Homeric scholars and advanced students to consult her work more easily."
