Homer’s Iliad: The Shield of Memory by Kenneth Atchity, a former professor of comparative literature and classics who later became a film producer, is his vintage classical literature studies text, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Story Merchant Books.
This was originally published in 1978 by Southern Illinois University Press as part of their Literary Structures series and credited as by Kenneth John Atchity and contains a foreword by series editor the late John Gardner, who was a notable novelist and literary critic in his own right.
The book thoroughly examines and interprets the titular classic ancient Greek epic from what was hailed as a fresh perspective at the time, and as Atchity’s Ph.D. dissertation, was awarded Yale University’s John Addison Porter Prize.
Offered worldwide, available at Amazon.
