After a brief introduction by the editors (outlining purpose, definitions, and method of this Companion), 33 contributions, divided into 8 parts present the reader with an overview of various aspects of Greek literature. ... For the intended audience—interested readers at an introductory level (as the editors themselves describe it: p. 1)—the book offers “a comprehensive introduction to the wide range of texts and literary forms produced in the Greek language over the course of a millennium beginning from the 6th century BCE up to the early years of the Byzantine Empire” (the publisher’s blurb). Nevertheless, because—as the editors rightly observe—“no single scholar can any longer master the entirety of Greek literature and its concomitant scholarship …” (p. 1), I firmly believe that the relevant audience is much, much wider than that of mere “interested readers” (unless “interested reader” should be understood in a more extensive context, a view I would endorse).
