Owen and Goodspeed's "Homeric Vocabularies" is a short but useful book for anyone learning Ancient Greek by reading Homer. It is less useful for someone who already knows Ancient Greek well but wants to read Homer; for that person one of the available Homeric Lexicons would be more useful/5(19).

THE ILIAD B TRANSLATED BY A. MURRAY [1] So then amid the huts the valiant son of Menoetius was tending the wounded Eurypylus, but the others, Argives and Trojans, fought on in throngs, nor were the ditch of the Danaans and their wide wall above long to protect them, the wall that they had builded as a defence for their ships and had drawn a trench about it—yet they gave not.

Is there such a list available on-line. Homer (/ˈhoʊmər/; Ancient Greek: ὅμηρος Greek pronunciation: [hómɛːros], Hómēros) is the legendary author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, two epic poems that are the central works of ancient Greek literature.

The Iliad is set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege. This commentary is 7 x 10 in. ( x cm), the same trim size as College Caesar and Cicero’s First Catilinarian but twice as thick.

The book has more of the look and and feel of a textbook than the other slimmer volumes in this series, but the size is necessary to accommodate the Latin text as well as the numerous vocabulary entries and grammatical notes on each page.

Because Book 5 presents the reader's first meeting with Odysseus, it is interesting that Homer chooses to show him alone on a beach on Calypso's island, apparently defeated and weeping. Throughout the poem, Odysseus is a series of apparent contradictions, a much more complicated character than we would find in any stereotypical epic hero.
