W.H. Friedrich's "Verwundung und Tod in Der Ilias", originally published in 1956, discusses in detail the plausibility (or otherwise) of the wounds received on the Homeric battlefield and is therefore of considerable interest to historians of medicine. It also makes a serious and sustained effort to grapple with the question of style, and thus confronts an issue which oral theory has scarcely touched. Peter Jones adds a preface briefly locating the work within the terms of oral theory. A medical analyses in a full appendix is also added.
