Homeric Whispers: Intimations of Orthodoxy in the Iliad and Odyssey
Roberto Salinas Price places Troy along Croatia's Dalmatian Coast where, he claims, geographical realities respond to geographical statements found in the Iliad and Odyssey. Furthermore, he argues, internal linguistic evidence suggests that these works were originally created in a Slavic Dialect but later became translated by a bicultural society into "Homeric" Greek.However, he adds, somewhere along this process of translation the tutorial guidance required for an understanding of these texts became lost, to the detriment of subsequent generations which never understood that the Iliad and Odyssey were sister compositions never intended to be separated from each other.

This books a vey interesting - but a difficult read because of the technical nature of the analysis. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating book.
I wish quote parts of the book in a book I am reading but cannot locate either the author or publisher. Anyone out there with a suggestion?
