Porphyry's Homeric questions on the Iliad : text, translation, commentary by Porphyry( )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Homeric Questions of the philosopher Porphyry (3rd cent. CE) is an important work in the history of Homeric criticism. Porphyry applies the dictum that 'the poet explains himself' to solve questions of interpretation in Homer. This new edition of the "Questions on the Iliad" eliminates much that was wrongly attributed to Porphyry in the old edition (1880). In the interest of the non-specialist, the new text has a facing translation in English. The commentary explains Porphyry's arguments and the editor's textual decisions
