Item description for Approaches to Homer, Ancient and Modern by Robert J. Rabel & Jonathan S. Burgess...
Ten new essays, from a distinguished cast of (mainly) North American scholars, approach Homer with insights gained from the modern disciplines of psychology and anthropology, narratology, oral theory and cognitive research. But the contributors also attend to ancient modes of approach to the Homeric poems: linguistic and narratological, ethical and psychological. The volume focuses both on literary technique in the poems, and on the portrayal of characters and peoples, central and marginal.
