Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Scott's work makes an important contribution to the study of the Homeric simile. Its strength lies in the presentation of a theory for simile analysis and for the manner in which similes blend with the narrative. Scholars will definitely benefit from employing Scott's observations, and it is hoped that this book find its way into future discussions of Homer.” —Bryn Mawr Classical Review

“This is an attractive and useful study of the Homeric simile and of its role in the performance and creation of Homeric poetry.”—The Classical Review
