No complete, scholarly commentary of Homer's Iliad has been published in German since Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (1868-1913). In the meantime, considerable progress has been made in many traditional branches of the study of Homer (language, facts, structure etc.). In addition, generally acknowledged fields such as narrative studies have received a systematic basis, while Mycenaeology (Linear B) and oral-poetry studies provide completely new possibilities for analysing texts. Using the old Ameis-Hentze-Cauer as a basis, the new commentary will take these developments into account and seek to reflect the current level of Homer studies as comprehensively as possible. Primary target groups include students and academics of classical studies as well as the humanities in general.
