Altho attributed to Plutarch, the Essay is probably the work of a grammaticus of the 2nd-3rd century & is the single most valuable source of evidence for the nature of the teaching of Homer in the schools of the Roman Empire. Well represented in the manuscript tradition, the Essay was used as prefatory material by Renaissance editors of Homer, beginning with the editio princeps of 1488, & so exercised a powerful influence on Renaissance & early-modern readers, who often refer to Plutarch as an authority on Homer. The newly edited Greek text is presented with facing translation.
