Item description for The Challenge of Epic: Allusive Engagement in the Dionysiaca of Nonnus (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum) by Robert E. C. Shorrock...

Nonnus once vied with Homer for popularity, today his Dionysiaca languishes in obscurity. This book offers a literary critical rehabilitation, it argues that modern neglect stems from a failure to appreciate the central position of allusion in late-antique poetry.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Challenge of Epic: Allusive Engagement in the Dionysiaca of Nonnus (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum)?

Allusively Engaging and Wonderful for NVQs  Apr 30, 2001
This XLIX Book epic is certainly one of the greatest and most fascinating insights into the world of ancient Rome that you can ever read. I am currently studying for 7 Grade 6 NVQs and I found this guide to the Ancient Greek pornography industry on and near Mount Olympus incredibly helpful and informative, not to mention revealing. Dionysus time and again reveals his divine intent to create a European standard for brothel quality and so spends much time assessing outlets personally; the Mnemosyne Biblitheca Classica Batava has been found to be the best such establishment in Greece - I agree wholeheartedly! Bob's welcoming style makes this the most easily accesible companion to the novice. The road directions were spot on. For further information try supplementa 1-209 but especially 211. Just look what quality the Cambridge academic system produced! And to quote Bob's favourite line of verse:

Would that I were in Grantchester in Grantchester.

Thankyou for a most enjoyable seven months of reading. If you enjoyed Bob's other books almost as much as I did or just happen to want some extra NVQ credit, this book is for you.
