This volume offers a detailed philological commentary on the longest of the Homeric Hymns. The commentary is preceded by a lengthy introduction addressing the Hymn's ideas on poetry and music, its humorous aspects, the poem's relation to the rest of archaic hexameter literature, its reception in later literature, its structure, date and place of composition, and the question of its transmission. Together, the introduction and the commentary provide a detailed analysis of the hymn with a view to ascertaining its significance in Greek literature.
