Apollonius Rhodius, Herodotus And Historiography
de A. D. (University Of Manchester) Morrison
Sobre o livro
Examines the relationship of Apollonius of Rhodes' Argonautica with Herodotus' Histories. Argues that it uses Herodotean historiography as a key intertext in order to manipulate the reader's generic expectations for an epic poem and to complicate the relationship between the contemporary Hellenistic Mediterranean and the distant mythological past.
