This book offers students of Greek and scholars interested in Greek literature the first English-language commentary on the "Battle of Frogs and Mice", a short animal epic ascribed to Homer in the ancient world. The book includes a contextualizing introduction covering issues of literary genre, literary history and the language of Homeric Greek. In addition to a revised Greek text, the volume also offers a new translation of the poem. The commentary furnishes readers with extensive linguistic and literary information so that they may investigate the problem of the poem's character and authorship on their own. A full vocabulary at the back ensures this is a one-stop shop for students reading the poem.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The publication of a commentary in English will certainly help to excite wider interest in this fascinating and enjoyable survival of Homeric parody ... The authors' enthusiasm for the poem is clear, and their comments will encourage new readers to think about its parodic techniques and to make their own further explorations. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
At last, a wonderful edition of this delightful work of epic parody... Christensen and Robinson provide a marvelous aid to the understanding and appreciation of this too little known work of Greek poetry. * Lee Fratantuono, Professor of Classics and William Francis Whitlock Professor of Latin, Ohio Wesleyan University, USA *
