Reviews

" It is hard to overstate the impact, both scholarly and imaginative, of Vinci' s compellingly argued thesis. . . . Scholars will be rethinking Indo-European studies from the ground up and readers of Homer' s epics will enter fresh realms of delight as they look anew at the world in which Homer' s heroes first breathed and moved." " Powerful, methodical, important, and convincing." " The Baltic Origins of Homer's Epic Tales is a rare example of a book that turns received notions upside-down." " . . .Vinci engages in intriguing, fascinating, but also well-substantiated speculation on the bases of Homer's works. . . . this work covers many little-known but interesting and colorful aspects of the ancient European world and also enhances appreciation of the literary style and the cultural material and sources of the works." " . . . blends history and classical studies with geographical analysis and spiritual insights as it provides evidence linking Homer's tales to northern European, not Mediterranean, origins. From how heroic memories were preserved and locales changed to the origins of civilization itself. . . ." " Vinci's audacious rewriting of Homeric culture and mythology is a creative proposition, which deserves to be further investigated. He has my full vote of confidence."
