The Homeric Hymns

The Homeric Hymns

OUP Oxford | November 13, 2008 | 192 pages

The Homeric Hymns honour the Greek gods. They are called 'Homeric' because the ancients attributed them to Homer; it is now accepted that they were composed by later poets working in the same tradition. Four of them stand out by reason of their length and quality: Hymns 2-5, in honour of Demeter, Apollo, Hermes, and Aphrodite respectively. This volume offers a faithful verse translation of all the hymns, Explanatory Notes, and a Glossary of Names.
