Summary
"Homer: The Resonance of Epic offers a new approach to the study of Homeric epic by combining ancient Greek perceptions of Homer with modern scholarship on traditional poetry." "In the first part of the book the authors argue that, in the archaic period, the Greeks saw the Iliad and Odyssey neither as literary works in the modern sense nor as the products of oral poetry. Instead, they regarded them as belonging to a much wider history of the divine cosmos, whose structures and themes are reflected in the resonant patterns of Homer's traditional language and narrative techniques." "Then, in Part II, they illustrate this claim by looking at some central aspects of the Homeric poems: the gods and fate, gender and society, death, fame and poetry. Each section shows how the patterns and preoccupations of Homeric storytelling reflect a historical vision that encompasses the making of the universe, from its beginnings when Heaven mated with Earth, to the present day."--BOOK JACKET
