Although scholars routinely state that the Iliad is an "oral" poem, since very near the time of its composition the great epic has circulated as a text stabilized in writing and popular with readers for study as well as enjoyment. What makes the Iliad the "good read" we know it to be? In Homer's Cosmic Fabrication Bruce Heiden delineates a new approach aimed at evaluating what the Iliad furnishes to readers thatmakes it comprehensible and engaging. His program draws upon cognitive narratology to develop novel research that illuminate the epic's artistry and philosophical depth.
