About this item

Christensen and Robinson offer Greek and English versions of a short parody of Greek epic that in the Roman Empire during the first century CE people attributed to Homer. Their extensive commentary is both for students of ancient Greek and for students of the literature but not necessarily the language. The poem tells the story of a war between frogs and mice set off by the death of a lone mouse who dared to take a ride on a frog's back in a marsh, they say, and the battle and the scenes preparing for it are steeped in Homeric conventions of assemblies, arming sequences, divine councils, and a slaughter of absurd extent. They place it withing the Greek epic tradition and the tradition of parody. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
