An Introduction to Homeric Epic

Bruce A. McMenomy

I have gathered these pages together (some of which I wrote myself; some of which were written by others) to help introduce you to the Homeric epic and its cultural context. Please read the pages linked below as relevant (i.e., you don't need to read the Odyssey material until we get there, and you need only look at the bibliography page if it interests you.)
