Summary 'Homer in Print' traces the print transmission and literary reception of the Iliad and the Odyssey from the fifteenth through the twentieth century. Over 175 mini-essays provide new details of each included edition's textual, intellectual, and publishing history. Three long-form essays contributed by scholars Glenn W. Most and David Wray, and collector M. C. Lang, place these editions within a wider context, exploring their role in ancient and modern philology, translation studies, and the history of printing. An extensive and strikingly illustrated testament to the power and popularity of Homer over the past five hundred years, 'Homer in Print' is an essential text for students and teachers of classics, classical reception, comparative literature, and book history. This volume, a product of new research and sharp scholarship, evidences Homer's ability to captivate the imaginations of poets, editors, and readers across the centuries.
