A collection of 26 international papers which consider the influence of Homeric epic on Roman and modern literature. The book includes examinations of themes within the Ilaiad and Odyssey , such as anger and disease, father and son relationships and Odysseus' speeches. Other papers present broader analyses of stylistic characteristics of ancient epic and place it within a cultural context. Contributors also examine Virgil's contribution to the genre and more recent works such as Joyce's Ulysses and Erich Auerbach's Mimesis . This is a scholarly work, not aimed at the casual reader, sprinkled with Greek extracts, some of which are translated. Fourteen essays are in English, eleven in German and one in French.
