The Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, which tells of the seduction of the shepherd Anchises by the love-goddess Aphrodite, has long been recognized as a masterpiece of early Western literature. This edition is designed as a reference tool to aid scholars and students in their study of the poem. The introduction and commentary deal with points of language appropriate to the specialist or student of Greek, but also with matters of literary interpretation of interest to the non-specialist reader.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite has moments of beauty; its composer is deft in the deployment and modification of inherited hexametric language ... In Andrew Faulkner a thorough and skilled editor has been found. * George Huxley, Hermathena *
