Epic Interactions

Gregory Hutchinson

Oxford University Press

This chapter seeks to illuminate Hellenistic poems by pursuing what they did with some aspects of Homer and with some ideas that were connected with Homer in the Hellenistic period. Accordingly, the inquiry will not consider the abundant and important evidence for poems that have been more or less lost; it will concentrate on one surviving epic, the Argonautica, and one partially surviving epic, the Hecale.

Keywords:   Homer, Hellenistic poems, Hellenistic period, Argonautica, Hecale
