Review quote

"Montiglio's contribution to the crowded field of Odysseus studies is to trace, in far more detail and depth than has been done before, the evidence for thr reception of Odysseus in specifically philosophical ancient sources." --Emily Wilson, "Times Literary Supplement" --Emily Wilson"TLS" (10/05/2012)
