The six-volume Commentary on Homer's Iliad prepared under the General Editorship of Professor G. S. Kirk is complete with the publication of this volume. It opens with two introductory chapters: the first on Homeric diction, the second on the contributions that comparative studies have made to seeing the Homeric epics in sharper perspective. In the commentary Dr. Hainsworth confronts the serious problems posed by the ninth, tenth and twelfth books of the Iliad. The Greek text is not included.
