A Referential Commentary and Lexicon to Homer, Iliad VIII
tabulates all the traditional units in a separate lexicon of Homeric structure, and examines critical decisions concerning the text in a discussion which employs the referential method as a critical criterion. Two small appendices deal with speech introduction formulae, and with the traditional function of Here and
Athene in early Greek epic poetry. - ;Kelly's work makes an important contribution to the fundamental question: how and what does Homer communicate? - Jenny Strauss Clay, Religious Studies Review;Details that seem at first to be mere fillers are given deeper significance by Kelly ...illuminating. - James Clackson, Times Literary Supplement;A whole thesaurus of motifs and narrative patterns are at [the reader's] disposal, as if he was able to watch not just the end product but also the very process of Homeric composition. In a nutshell, he is virtually plunged into a universe of narrative associations, into the variegated tapestry of Homeric song. . . . Homeric scholars will definitely need to consult it . . . the author has to be praised for the wealth of information he has put at our disposal. - Bryn Mawr Classical Review;The principal strength of this work is its patient amassing of a large body of material that allows us to appreciate Book 8's rich and complex intratextual referents. The work has established its author as a 'promakhos' in the field of Homeric studies, and I look forward to reading and profiting from his future research. - Classical Review
