This collection makes available critical work on the "Odyssey" produced since the 1940s. The ten essays address five major concerns: the poem's programmatic representation of social and religious institutions and values; its transformation of folktales and traditional stories into epic adventures; its representation of gender roles and, in particular, of Penelope; its narrative strategies and form; and its relation to the "Iliad", especially to that epic's distinctive conception of heroism.
