Exchange: Homeric Reciprocity and the Heritage of Simmel and Mauss: An
interesting, anthropologically inspired article on the workings of
exchange and conflict in Homer. Good historical background and a couple of
good examples from the Odyssey, of both functional and
dysfunctional hospitality. Not for the Short Attention Span Theatre
Ancient Greece Links: Another massive clearinghouse of links.
Poetics: Notes on Homer's Iliad and
interesting overview of Aristotle's ideas on Homer's virtues and
The life and times of Eumaeus. Probably more exhaustive than Homer is.
Greek Mythology: Odysseus: A brief, but thorough, synopsis.
Homer and the Odyssey: A clearinghouse of all the Odyssey
information you could possibly want.
Penelope: A short biography.
The Perseus Project: Classical
texts (including the Odyssey) and other resources.
Reunion: A passage from the Odyssey dealing
with Odysseus' and Penelope's reunion.
