Structures of Epic Poetry

Vol. I: Foundations. Vol. II.1/II.2: Configuration. Vol. III: Continuity

Edited by: Christiane Reitz and Simone Finkmann

This compendium (4 vols.) studies the continuity, flexibility, and variation of structural elements in epic narratives. It provides an overview of the structural patterns of epic poetry by means of a standardized, stringent terminology. Both diachronic developments and changes within individual epics are scrutinized in order to provide a comprehensive structural approach and a key to intra- and intertextual characteristics of ancient epic poetry.
