In the second volume, the commentaries by Heubeck (Books IX-XII) and Hoekstra (Books XIII-XVI) are both preceded by introductions, with Hoekstra paying special attention to diction in the Odyssey and the tradition of epic diction in general. The introductions and commentary have been thoroughly revised and adapted to the text of T. W. Allen in the Oxford Classical Text series.

'models of clarity ... fascinating reading ... it presents a bracing challenge and you have to work to get at the genuine riches it contains' Martin Thorpe, Shrewsbury Sixth Form College, JACT Review 'This is a very impressive work of technical scholarship ... by far the best work available on the subject in this format.' Greece & Rome, Vol XXXVII, No 1 April 1990 'The authors have made excellent use of the chance to improve what was already a first-class monument of useful scholarship, especially in adding cross-references, bibliography and indices ... this superb achievement will do much to stimulate Homeric scholarship.' Richard Janko, University of California, Los Angeles, Journal of Hellenic Studies, CX, 1990
