Prof. Nagy's interpretations were essential for my novel version of Euripides' Madness of Herakles https://jasonkassel.substack.com/.
I've read this book a couple of times and imagine I'll have to read it again at some point. Homeric Questions precedes Nagy's more extreme views on the homeric question and was a decent read.All in all I recommend it as an informative and enjoyable book.
