John Wright's thorough, up-to-date revision of Clyde Pharr's Homeric Greek is presented by the University of Oklahoma Press for use in first-year Greek courses in colleges and preparatory schools. This revised edition adds concise sections on grammar that will be of immense aid to the student who has not previously learned Latin grammar. With a judicious hand Wright has removed some extraneous commentary on the Iliad, but the essence of Pharr's text-which has stood the test of time-has been left untouched. Pharr explains in his eloquent introduction why the ideal approach to the language is with Homer rather than with the writers of Attic Greek. The Homeric method has, indeed, met with remarkable success; Wright's newly revised text will undoubtedly spark fresh enthusiasm in both students and professors of Greek. While this book contains more than the first-year student could easily master, it does not attempt to catalog "every stray Homeric form.... Its first object is to teach beginners to read Greek intelligently and with pleasure."… (mer)

Probably my favorite book on Homeric Greek. It was of great help when I first began learning ancient Greek. Its quotes and aphorisms are brilliant. ( )

Pharr's introduction makes a very persuasive case for starting Greek studies with Homeric Greek, but I have not followed up on it.
  antiquary | Jul 18, 2008 |
In the introduction, the author argues for the merits of teaching Homeric or "epic" Greek to new students of the language. For instance, much of the most beautiful ancient Greek literature, from the odes of Pindar to the histories of Herodotus, is much more "Homeric" (in vocabulary and/or spirit) than "Attic". Also, both the literary forms and the content of Homer's verses are referred to and built upon by the later writers, so moving from Homeric to Attic is much smoother than vice versa.

As for the actual content of this book, it takes the student through the first book of the Iliad. There is a short but effective Homeric grammar included, and a thorough dictionary. My biggest complaint of this book concerns the comments for the Greek text. The grammatical comments were useful, but the nongrammatical background and cultural comments often sounded like soap-box lectures on subjects far afield from the text at hand. A sample sentence begins, "It is characteristic of the psychology of primitive peoples to see in the operations of nature the direct actions of their gods...", and again, "...he was a prophet inspired of his god, an idea which those of his class have never been at pains to controvert." They can be easily skipped -- the text of the Iliad speaks for itself.

One should be aware that this "book for beginners" does NOT mean it is appropriate for those with no background in Greek. Teaching oneself Greek is extremely difficult to do well. If you are dead-set on doing so, I recommend "Greek: An Intensive Course" to get plenty of practice, even though it does primarily teach Attic Greek rather than Homeric. ( )
