Graziosi, B. (2002) 'Inventing Homer : the early reception of epic.', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. Cambridge classical studies.
How was the poet Homer imagined by ancient Greeks? This book looks at stories circulating between the sixth and fourth centuries BC about his birth, name and origin, blindness and his relationship to other poets and his descendants. The work studies the ancient reception of the Homeric poems, and looks at it in relation to modern representations of Homer, ancient and modern conceptions of authorship, and the "Homeric Question."
