Available in paperback for the first time, Jenny Strauss Clay's landmark study of the Odyssey argues that Athena's wrath is central to both the structure and the theme of the epic poem. Clay demonstrates that an appreciation of the thematic role of Athena's anger elucidates the poem's complex narrative organization and its conception of the hierarchical relations between gods and men. This edition includes a new introduction by the author.

Jenny Clay's The Wrath of Athena is an acute, original, and subtle reading of the Odyssey . . . I am delighted to see it back in print.--Charles Segal
