And are they good?the new German Homer commentaries ("Gesamtkommentar") are only on the Iliad, none on the Odyssey. And I would not call them just updates of the old Ameis-Hentze-Cauer (although that's what the authors themselves call them) but new works entirely.
Actually, I'm looking around for resources for a second reading of (parts of) the Iliad. So far I've come up with:
-Basler Gesamtkommentar, so far commentaries to books 1,2,3,6,9 and 24 have been published
-Cambridge commentary in 6 volumes. I understand from what I've read not all of them are equally interesting and helpful. Apparently especially the one edited by Janko on books 13-16 is very good.
-Oxford Green & Yellow series: as far as I know only books 6 and 22 are covered. I have actually used the one by Barbara Graziosi on book 6 and liked it.
I've read about a major commentary of the Iliad in Italian but am unable to trace it. And I'm a bit surprised I didn't find anything in French (apart from Chantraine of course).
So which of the above do you recommend?
