Books about Classical Greek Literature

Is there a book which exists which would be a survey of Classical Greek Literature in the sense of Duff's Survey of Latin Literature? Duff wrote one volume about the "Golden Age" and another about the "Silver Age". I know this is kind of a tough question!!! Any help would be appreciated!

homeric texts

Has anyone used Raymond Schoder's A Reading Course in Homeric Greek? I will be studying Homer soon (I'd thought I would start next fall but decided not to wait that long) and would like to supplement Pharr with another Homeric text.

Thanks

Comparative phonology

Does anyone know of a book that discusses, compares and contrasts the sounds (i.e. phonologies) of the different lanugages of the world? I've already got one on phonetics, and am teaching myself the basic sounds, but I'd like to see how these sounds are put together into phonetic systems in lots of other languages (and what effects this creates in the language, such as "ugliness" or "fluidity"), possibly with a view to making my own ...

Accent confusion

Can some one tell me why the accent pattern is different for path/r patro/j and quga/thr qugatro/j ?
Nouns are said to have persistent accents but I can't detect a reason why the accent in quga/thr moves from the penult to the ultima.

Thank you.
