We are delighted to announce the publication of a special volume of Ramus: New Essays on Homer: Language, Violence, and Agency edited by Profs. Sara Lindheim and Helen Morales. The book had its roots in a conference organized by the editors at UCSB in 2011 and contains specially commissioned essays on the Iliad and Odyssey. It presents cutting-edge literary criticism on Homer.
