This book examines stories circulating between the sixth and fourth centuries BC about his birth, his name and place of origin, his date, the circumstances of his life, such as the story of his blindness, his relation to other poets and his heirs. The aim is to explore the ancient reception of the Homeric poems, and to look at it in relation to modern representations of Homer, ancient and modern conceptions of authorship, and the 'Homeric Question'. The book's engaging and accessible style should make it attractive to a wide range of readers, including non-classicists, and all quotations from Greek are provided with an English translation."--Jacket." ;
