Preface to the second edition

This monograph was well received when it was first published in 1984, and I gather from the remarks of students and colleagues that it is still a useful guide to readers who want a non-technical but fairly detailed introduction to the narrative architecture and major themes of the Iliad. In this second edition, I have taken advantage of some opportunities of the digital medium, and I have made light changes and corrections here and there.
