Homer and the Bronze Age

The Reflection of Humanistic Ideals in Diplomatic Practices
ISBN: 978-1-59333-985-2
Peter Karavites presents a revisionist overview of Homeric scholarship, whose purpose is to bridge the gap between the “positivist” and “negativist” theories dominant in the greater part of the twentieth century. His investigation derives new insights from Homer’s text and solves the age old question of the relationship between Homer and the Mycenaean age.
