'This important and ground-breaking book provides a systematic and convincing reading of these four fascinating poems as a group, and in relation to the epics of Homer and the Theogony of Hesiod. Clay's expert and highly original analysis of the poems' narrative and thematic patterns succeeds brilliantly in demonstrating not only the unexpected subtlety and coherence of each Hymn, but also the ways in which they work in combination to provide an over-arching Greek world-view. This is by far the best book that has been written on this important body of poetry.' -- Mark Griffith, University of California, Berkeley 'Though controversial in many places, this book is of great value to classicists. Its assumption that the poems have an intellectual and "theological" coherence... is welcome and will benefit those who teach the Hymns.' -- Charles Platter, Classical Outlook The Politics of Olympus, first published in the USA in 1989, is here issued in paperback for the first time, with a new preface and updated bibliography.
