The poet in the Iliad

The poet in the Iliad

(p.9) 1 The poet in the Iliad
The Author's Voice in Classical and Late Antiquity

Barbara Graziosi

Oxford University Press

This chapter seeks to characterize the voice of the poet within the Iliad, and to show that a better understanding of the poet’s voice helps to explain several distinctive and puzzling features of Iliadic narrative. The chapter looks at the poet’s relationship to the Muses, and his temporal and spatial self-positioning within the world of the Trojan war, all of which illustrate the divine perspective he offers on that war.

Keywords:   Homer, Iliad, the poet, the Muses, space-time perception
