"There is an overwhelming body of detailed commentary and critical literature on Homer and the Epic Tradition, dating back centuries toward the Renaissance. The matter of the famous divisionist "Homeric Problem" is largely ignored nowadays except for a reference, which I can summarize briefly, as part of the history of Homeric criticism in the modern world. One can hardly imagine the hundreds of Ph.D. theses on every aspect of Homeric epic, from archaeological details to art representations to Near Eastern connections......... ad infinitum if not ad nauseam."
Everything you ever wanted to know about Homer for under $1,200.
