    This wide ranging collection makes to specialists and no specialists alike important critical work on the odyssey produced during the last half century. 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. In the introduction, Seth l. Schein describes the poetic background to the work and suggests a variety of interpretive approaches, some of which are developed in the essays that follow. These essays include previously published work by jean Pierre verdant, Pierre vidal naquet, pietro puce, and Charles p. Segal. There also are a new essay by Laura m. Slaking, two revised and expanded ones by Nancy felson rubin and Michael n. Angler, and three appearing in English for the first time by avow hasher, Karl Reinhardt, and verdant. The result is a collection that juxtaposes older, often hard to find articles with significant newer pieces in a way that allows for a fruitful dialogue among them.
