Summary
"Extending his distinctive analysis of Homeric epic to the Iliad, Bruce Louden presents new approaches to understanding the themes and story of the poem. In this study, he demonstrates how repeated narrative motifs argue for an expanded understanding of the structure of epic poetry. First identifying the "subgenres" of myth within the poem, he then reads these against related mythologies of the Near East, developing a context in which the poem can be more accurately interpreted."--Jacket
