(p.22) 2 The Monster and the Monologue: Polyphemus from Homer to Ovid

G. O Hutchinson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The colourful career of the Cyclops in literary history strikingly exemplifies the complexities of Homeric reception. This chapter illustrates the value of narratological strategies, which have made such a vast contribution to the understanding of classical literature. It also suggests the value of extending narratology, and integrating it further with other types of criticism.

Keywords:   Cyclops, Polyphemus, Homeric reception, Greek poetry, narratology
