about this item

Nikoletta Kanavou gives readers a linguistic, literary, and contextual look at the personal names in the texts of Homer. She considers both of his epics and the character and action of selected heroes in their textual contexts. She contrasts modern etymologies of the heroes’ names with ancient meanings in order to provide understanding of what the heroic names may have meant to Homer and his contemporary audiences. The author is currently conducting research at Heidelberg University, Germany. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
