About this item

Classicists and scholars of literature during later periods explore the variety of ways that heroic epic narratives--mostly Homer of course, but others as well--have been continued in the Greco-Roman and Western classical traditions through prequels, sequels, and retellings down to the present age. Their topics include Triphiodorus' The Sack of Troy, and Colluthus' The ****** of Helen: a sequel and a prequel from Late Antiquity, Robert Henryson's Testament of Cresseid: transtextual tragedy, squaring the epic cycle: Ovid's rewriting of the epic tradition in the Metamorphosis, ending the Argonautica: Giovanni Battista Pio's Argonautica-supplement (1519), and Virgil mentor: Ursula Le Guin's Lavinia.
