about this item

The new series will have a narrow focus on Greek epic from Homer to Nonnus, in order to combat the fragmentation in Classics that makes tracking down work in one subfield difficult. The theme for the first volume is the epic middle, and the topics include structure as sema: structural and liminal middles in the Odyssey, lost in the middle: story time and discourse time in the Iliad, ending in the middle: enjambment and Homeric performance, stretching out the battle: Zeus and measurement in the Iliad, middle and prophecy in the Odyssey, and the death and mutilation of Imbrius in Iliad 13. General papers cover divine protagonists in the Iliad: Hector's death in Book 22, and Manethoniana. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
