I am at work on a book concerning Homeric religion. Other projects in progress include Rhapsoidia (about the meaning of ancient competitive performance for our understanding of the poems of Homer, Hesiod, and the hymns) and Mythologizing Performance (about Greek lyric and wisdom traditions). My new edition of Richmond Lattimore's Iliad translation appeared in October 2011.
