Abstract

Martin West is widely recognized as one of the most significant classicists of all time. Over nearly half a century his publications have transformed our understanding of Greek poetry. This book celebrates his achievement with twenty-five chapters on different areas of the subject which he has illuminated, written by distinguished scholars from four continents. It also includes West's Balzan Prize acceptance speech, Forward into the Past, in which he explains his approach to literary scholarship, and a complete bibliography of his academic publications.
