The Best of the Argonauts
The Redefinition of the Epic Hero in Book One of Apollonius' Argonautica (Hellenistic Culture and Society #10)
Other Editions of This Title:
In bringing Apollonius' "curious and demanding poem" to life, Clauss illuminates two features of the poet's narrative style: his ubiquitous allusions to the poetry of others, especially Homer, and the carefully balanced structural organization of his episodes. The poet's subtextual interplay is explored, as is his propensity for underscoring the manipulation of the poetry of others through ring composition.
