In this collection a team of international scholars offers the first attempt to explore the poems meaning, significance and reception. Individual chapters examine the organisation and structure of the poem, its social and political context, its relation to other early epic and Hesiodic poetry, its place in the development of a pan-Hellenic consciousness, and attitudes to women. The wider influence of the Catalogue is considered in chapters on Pindar and the lyric tradition, on Hellenistic poetry, and on the poems reception at Rome. This collection provides a significant new approach to the study of the Catalogue.
