About the Author

Seth Schein is Emeritus Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of California, Davis. He is the author of six books, three of which are on Homer: The Mortal Hero: An Introduction to Homer's Iliad (1984), Reading the Odyssey: Selected Interpretive Essays (1996) [edited], and Homeric Epic and its Reception: Interpretive Essays (2016). He has also edited Sophocles' Philoctetes for the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics series.


'… it will benefit all who consult it. Reading it, one feels confident of being in the sure hands of scholar who has thought deeply about the poem over a long career. The edition's rich scholarship, full and careful treatment of myriad issues, thoughtful judgments, and attention to both the small items and the big picture open up the marvels of the Iliad. For decades to come it will prove a valuable companion for anyone reading the poem's opening book.' Michael Halleran, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

'[Schein] copes smoothly with the challenges facing an editor of this crucial book: how to pick out what he needs to highlight from the vast range of Homeric scholarship and compress it into the limited pages offered by a standard series, at one and the same time providing an introduction to undergraduate and postgraduate students and retaining the interest of [scholars].' Anthony Verity, Classics for All (https://classicsforall.org.uk)
