It has been recognized by many scholars as presenting in brief space and with fairness the points involved in the discussion, and the progress which has been made towards a solution of the problem.

I have been led to translate it mainly by the fact, as I suppose it to be, that there is no work in English which gives any just idea of the difficulties in the way of accepting the Homeric poems as the production of one poet, unless it be the large and expensive work of Mure, which defends the unity of authorship. It seemed desirable that there should be accessible in English a partial statement of the reasons which have led so many German scholars to doubt the unity of authorship of the poems.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
