This is the first collection of scholarly essays on the Homeric Hymns, a corpus of 33 hexameter compositions that were probably recited at festivals of the gods whom they honoured and were often attributed in antiquity to Homer. After a general introduction to modern scholarship on the HomericHymns, the essays of the first part of the book examine in detail aspects of the longer narrative poems in the collection, while those of the second part give critical attention to the shorter poems and to the collection as a whole. The contributors to the volume present a wide range of stimulating views on the study of the Homeric Hymns, which, with the discovery of new fragments, have attracted much interest in recent years.
