    One thought on “Homeric Hymns. Homeric Apocrypha. Lives of Homer

    1. John L

      The Homeric Hymns are poetical and a pleasure to read if you have an interest in mythology: **** The apocrypha are humorous and smutty works probably not written by Homer: **Since nothing is really known about Homer, even if he ever existed, the Lives of Homer are fictional attempts to glorify various Greek cities as his birthplace and/or residence. Skip them and you won't be missing anything important: *

    2. James Miller

      The battle of Frogs and Mice is an epic epic parody. The book is worth buying just for that (if you are a fan of the Iliad - otherwise it may not excite so much).
