Item description for Die Erzahlung Von Meleagros: Zur Literarischen Entwicklung Der Kalydnischen Kultlegende (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum) by Peter Grossardt...

The myth of the Calydonian boar-hunt belongs to the few great mythical cycles of the ancient world. Corresponding to this importance, this book contains a complete presentation of the literary sources of the Calydonian hunt and of the other adventures of its central hero Meleagros. The documents are arranged by genres and put into their literary context. Special attention is paid to the several lines and breaks of the tradition, which led to a spilt into different versions of the legend. Time and again it is observable that single poets used the myth as a functional element in a larger context or as a conscious contrast to older texts. Following this main part, an attempt has been made to reconstruct the prehistory of the legend and its background in the history of religion. As a result, it is shown that the myth originally had the function of an aition for the cult of Artemis Laphria and that it was taken up by oral epic poets already before Homer.
