In the ancient world Homer was recognised as the fountainhead of culture. His poems, the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey', were universally admired as examples of great literature which couldnever be surpassed. In this study, Jenkyns re-examines the twoHomeric epics and the work that is perhaps their closest rival, Virgil's Aeneid.
