Now available in paperback, this is the final instalment of a three-volume presentation in English of a commentary on Homer's Odyssey compiled by an international team of scholars and published in Italian under the auspices of the Fondazione Lorenzo Valla. In this volume the commentary by Russo (books xvii-xx), Fernandez-Galiano (books xxi-xxii), and Huebeck (books xxiii-xxiv) is preceded by introductions dealing with the books in question. For this English version the introduction and commentary have been thoroughly revised and adapted to the text of T. W. Allen in the Oxford Classical Texts series. There is also a consolidated index at the end of this volume.
Praise for Volumes 1 and 2: "Will find eager interest among scholars and teachers....The bibliography, general introduction, and breadth of commentary should...make this the standard work on the Odyssey for the next generation."--Choice
"English-speaking readers of Homer everywhere will welcome the publication of volume III of the new Oxford Commentary on Homer's Odyssey"--New England Classical Newsletter & Journal
