Martin West is widely recognized as one of the most significant classicists of all time. Over nearly half a century his publications have transformed our understanding of Greek poetry. This book celebrates his achievement with twenty-five chapters on different areas of the subject which he has illuminated, written by distinguished scholars from four continents. It also includes West’s Balzan Prize acceptance speech, â€∼Forward into the Pastâ€™, in which he explains his approach to literary scholarship, and a complete bibliography of his academic publications.
