“This is not to detract from the undoubted merits and richness of what F. and her team have produced; only to question whether it is not time for putting a curb on publishers’ seemingly insatiable taste for ventures of this kind.” (Scripta Classica Israelica, 2012)
“This is a remarkably comprehensive encyclopedia, embracing everything one might think of in relation to Homer, and even more one might not immediately expect … It is another of those reference works I am happy to recommend both as a source of reference information on demand by the user, and as a fascinating work to browse and read more widely.” (Reference Reviews, 2012)
"What we have [here] is a brilliant achievement: three volumes, which anyoneeither the layman or the Homeric scholarwill use to his great enjoyment and benefit, since it is detailed, reader-friendly and always informed with the ‘last word’ on numerous aspects of Homer’s work and world." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, March 2012)
"The coverage is thorough, and the articles are accessible to the general reader while maintaining a scholarly sophistication that makes them useful for the specialist. A handy and valuable resource for any serious student of Homer." (Library Journal, July 15, 2011)
