Homer’s famous Iliad and Odyssey represent some of the oldest Greek literature known to us. Thus, anyone who wants to get a feel for how Greek developed over time starts with Homer. Since Homer’s Greek is several hundred years earlier than the golden age of Attic Greek, a special grammar is required to describe its features. Monro’s Homeric Grammar has long been the standard reference work in the field. Like Shakespeare is to English readers, Homer was never far from the Greek consciousness, and a study of Homer can—in addition to being enjoyable for its own sake—be useful for understanding Greek literature from later periods as well.
