A Commentary on Quintus of Smyrna, Posthomerica 14

Format: Academic Reference
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780199565054
Publisher: OUP Oxford

The Posthomerica, a Greek epic by Quintus of Smyrna believed to have been written in the third century AD, tells the story of the Trojan War beginning with the events immediately following the end of the narrative of the Iliad. This detailed commentary on Book 14 - covering Helen's return to Menelaus, the sacrifice of Polyxena, and the homeward journey of the victorious Greeks - offers a literary analysis of the end of the poem and examines its engagement with the diction, motifs, and narrative techniques of the earlier epic tradition, and in particular with the Homeric epics.
