About the Author

Simon Pulleyn read Classics at Oxford in the 1980s and stayed on to write his doctoral thesis on prayer in Ancient Greek religion. He taught Latin and Greek at Oxford for most of the 1990s, at the end of which he trained as a lawyer. After a longish spell as a solicitor in the City of London, he taught law for a few years before deciding to give himself over to full-time research and writing. He has published numerous articles and reviews in learned journals, and is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society and of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics.


To offer new perspectives on one of the most hallowed oeuvres of the Western literary canon certainly is a daunting task. Yet Pulleyn fearlessly takes up the challenge, and, unlike the epic protagonist of his text, manages in the course of his meanderings to bring his readers back to port unscathed...If this volume will help more readers to approach it in the original Greek, it will have fulfilled its purpose. * Alexander Andree, University of Toronto, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
Homer, Odyssey I can certainly be recommended to anyone who wants to explore this classic work more closely, and specifically to engage with the Greek text. * M. A. Orthofer, Complete Review *
It is a pleasure to welcome this new commentary on dyssey 1 . . . a wholly admirable edition. * Colin Leach, Classi cs for All *
