The first six sections of the book deal with the fundamental elements of grammar that are a necessary preliminary to study. From the seventh section onwards the course proceeds through the Odyssey, with grammatical explanations and exercises. This edition is carefully structured in 25 sections and is suitable for independent study or for those beginning classical Greek studies. It has comprehensive notes, and includes a reference grammar and a word list. It provides an introduction not only to the Greek language but also to one of the great classics of world literature.
