The “Events after Homer”, described by Quintus Smyrnaeus in the third century AD in his Greek epic Posthomerica, are an attempt to bridge the gap between the Iliad and the Odyssey , and to combine the various scattered reports of the battle for Troy into a single tale: the fate of Achilles, Ajax, Paris and the Amazon Penthesileia, the intervention of Neoptolemos and the story from the Trojan horse to the destruction of the city. The volume presented here summarizes the results of the first international conference on Quintus Smyrnaeus.
Manuel Baumbach und Silvio Bär, University of Zurich, Switzerland.
"Overall, this volume is a welcome addition to scholarship on imperial Greek poetry and provides fresh and exciting new directions for the study of Quintus of Smyrna and late Greek literature generally. It is highly recommended for readers interested in intertextuality/reception studies, the Second Sophistic, or late antiquity generally."Vincent Tomasso in: BMCR 2008.09.58
