About this book

From the preface:

In preparing this edition I have set before myself a threefold aim; in the first place, to supply a sound, conservative text with all the necessary apparatus, prolegomena, translation, bibliography and notes both critical and exegetical; in the second, to make use of the archaeological method which Professor Ridgeway has applied so brilliantly to the study of the Homeric poems; and in the third, to emphasise the essential unity of the old Teutonic languages in ‘matter’ as in poetic diction. How far it has been accomplished I cannot say: I can at least plead with Marryat’s nurse in Mr Midshipman Easy that my book is ‘such a little one.’
