School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-To offer students such delicious meals (Homer and Homeric criticism) cooked down to pabulum is offensive. This slim research and study guide, which includes biographical data, thematic analyses of both The Iliad and The Odyssey, and a couple of bibliographies, tries to be intellectual and nonreader compliant at the same time. It begins with a promising introduction but whatever value it may have quickly evaporates into some kind of quasi-watered-down reference work. Are there actually students capable of following "Andrew Ford on Poetry and Belatedness" or "W. B. Stanford on the Ambiguity of the Odysseus Figure" even in these predigested forms, but incapable of following the basic plot of Homer's epics? Recommend the "Modern Critical Views" series (Chelsea) or the "Twentieth Century Views" (Prentice Hall) to students who want analytical articles in one volume.-Herman Sutter, Saint Agnes Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
