Resumen

Scholar Andrew Dalby delves into the world that first heard the "Odyssey" and the "Iliad", and asks new questions about the poet Homer. Dalby follows the growth of the legend of Troy from its kernel of historical truth and retraces the succession of singers who re-created the unforgettable story for generations of audiences. He asks why the two great epics at last crossed the frontier from song to writing and how this astonishing transformation from the singer's mouth to the goatskin page was achieved. A gifted detective of the classical world, Dalby finds new approaches to the personality of Homer, showing how the earliest evidence has been misread. He makes a powerful case that both poems are the work of a single poet and comes to an ultimate conclusion that will surprise even serious classical scholars: Homer was probably a woman.
