In reading the silences, the aural equivalent of the ‘spaces on the page,’ Slatkin is both careful and bold: she combs with care through the language of Homer, but is not afraid to make bold inferences and associations… The accumulation of suggestive evidence, the logical progression of her argument, and the consistency of her explanations coalesce into a book that has changed the way I read the Iliad.—Andrew Sprague, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
