Présentation de l'éditeur

Intended to be used in conjunction with "The Iliad of Homer a Parsed interlinear Text" Available for the Kindle from Lighthouse Digital Publishing

The object of the present edition of the Iliad is to offer a guide to students anxious to know more of Homer than they can learn from elementary school-books. It must be confessed that, when once the strict limits of a verbal commentary are passed, it is hard to know which path to choose from the many which open into the world revealed to us by the Homeric poems. We find ourselves at the starting-point of all that has given Greece her place in the world—of Greek history, of Greek art, of Greek philosophy, theology, and myth. The poems are our ultimate resource for the study of the history of the Greek language, and it is to them that we owe all our knowledge of the one great school of Greek criticism. An editor may be pardoned if, at the risk of apparent superficiality and discursiveness, he attempts, not of course to follow all or any of these roads, but barely to indicate the direction in which they lead.

HASH(0x9359ffa8) étoiles sur 5 A must-have volume for the intermediate or advanced student of Homeric Greek 20 février 2013
Par Lawrence Woodlock - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I agree with the remarks of the previous reviewer. Walter Leaf's Commentary was a landmark in Homeric scholarship when it was published (Vol I - 1900, Vol II - 1902), and it is now very difficult (and expensive!) to obtain. This ebook contains the full line-by-line textual commentary from both volumes of Leaf's Commentary. Homeric scholarship has advanced remarkably in the past century, a fact which can best be appreciated by looking through a modern commentary on the Iliad, like the six-volume Cambridge commentary, the work of our most accomplished modern Homerists - Kirk, Hainsworth, Janko, Edwards and Richardson. On questions of philology, however, even these scholars tend to refer the reader to the fuller discussions of Leaf in this century-old book. Now that Leaf's Commentary has been brought back to us in a splendidly executed 21st Century format, the intermediate or advanced student of Homer should not hesitate to add it to his or her library. I only wish it had been available decades ago. I'm glad to have it now, even though I own a good set of the original printed volumes. The ebook lacks the text printed in the original version - but it is the custom nowadays for extensive commentaries on the full Iliad to omit the text on the reasonable assumption that the reader already has his or her own.

One small note: In Leaf's discussions of the "digamma" that letter is represented by an "f" in this electronic version. I suspect that modern electronic Greek fonts do not have a symbol for a letter that had disappeared from the major Greek dialects by late classical times. An "f" is close enough, as long as you know it is used to represent the Greek digamma in Leaf's discussion of words that once contained that sound.

HASH(0x9278e870) étoiles sur 5 Good though old commentary, but Kindle version has major drawbacks. 20 juin 2015
Par James Foster - Publié sur Amazon.com

I agree with the other two reviewers here on Leaf's content, which I found very helpful in reading the Greek text for the third time (also right that it won't help beginners) ; but if they read the same Kindle version I did, I think there are some major drawbacks.

Firstly, like most low priced Kindle books, it was essentially not proofread; nearly every paragraph contained typos, both in the English and more problematically in the Greek quotations, which in many cases made it impossible to tell what form he was talking about (one or more letters replaced by *>, accents moved to the preceding or following letter, which is a problem if that's the very question he's talking about, random capitalization), there were missing words at the ends of some sentences, and the last word of many sentences were transposed with the first word of the next sentence, especially when it was a citation (Schol. The A. . . .for Schol. A. The. . .)

Secondly, the Kindle edition doesn't omit just the text, which is understandable, but also the Introduction, the Introductions to the individual books, and the Appendices, which are referred to continually in the notes. This is just the notes.

Par Raymond H. Larson - Publié sur Amazon.com

Line-by-line notes to the Greek text. Leaf's Commentary is over 100 years old, written decades before Parry's theory of oral composition. So Leaf's structural comments are dated, but most of his specifically literary observations are still relevant and often illuminating. His great strength is the detailed lexigraphical and grammatical information he provides, supplemented by copious quotations from the ancient scholia. This information forms the bulk of the Commentary and is both accurate and extremely helpful for understanding Homer's Greek. This digital version is very well done and I find it handy and easy to use on my iPhone--easier than struggling with a printed commentary. I recommend it highly for anyone reading the Iliad in Greek.
