9780198143871: Measure and Music: Enjambement and Sentence Structure in the Iliad

This book is the first line-by-line analysis of enjambement and verse-internal breaks throughout the entire Iliad. Addressing larger, stylistic questions concerning genre, effect, and the manipulation and enjambing of formulae, Higbie examines a wide range of literary structures, including speeches, similes, battle scenes, and catalogues. A fundamental and thorough examination of enjambement in Homeric verse, this work will become a standard reference for scholars and students of Homer.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1991. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The foundation of this book is a line-by-line analysis of enjambement, or the syntactical relationship between successive verses, in the Iliad. Such a study develops naturally from Milman Parry s work, which sought to show the importance for oral composition, and specifically for Homer, both of the syntactical link between lines and the frequency of each type of enjambement. In contrast to earlier studies, which utilized only portions of the text, Dr. Higbie s book is unique in presenting analyses of the complete poem. In doing so, she makes material available which can be used to answer larger stylistic questions of genre, effect, and the manipulation and enjambing of formulae. Speeches, similes, battle scenes, and catalogues, for example, can be distinguished by the length and structure of the sentences, as well as by the relationship between the individual sentence and the hexameter verse. Moreover, the flexibility and survival of the formula depend in part upon its grammatical construction. The importance of enjambement to Homeric verse makes this book an essential reference work for scholars and students of Homer alike. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780198143871
