Women in Greek epic are treated as objects, yet they also use objects to negotiate their own agency, subverting the male viewpoint by utilizing the very form they themselves are thought by men to embody. This volume comes at a turning point in the gendering of Homeric studies, shining new light on the Iliad and Odyssey by bringing together Gender Theory and the burgeoning field of New Materialisms to decentre the male subject and put centre stage not only the woman as object but also the agency of women and objects.
