George Steiner

  • A Future Literacy

  • Homer and the Scholars

    GEORGE STEINER, a young and lively critic, attacks one of the most fascinating and durable literary mysteries: who was the real author of the ILIAD and the ODYSSEY? He proves a sure guide through the tangles of nineteenthcentury textual criticism and offers his own solution to the obvious differences between the two classics ascribed to Homer. Mr. Steiner’s second book, THE DEATH OF TRAGEDY, was published last spring by Knopf.
