In the OXFORD CLASSICAL MONOGRAPHS series. An examination of the representation and poetic function of madness in epic poetry which addresses the difficulty of defining madness, and discusses how each epic explores the theme in a unique way.
Madness features in many ancient epics: not only do characters go mad, but madness often plays an important thematic role. This book examines the representation and poetic function of madness in epic poetry (including the work of Homer, Virgil, and Ovid), addresses the difficulty of defining madness, and discusses how each epic explores the theme in a unique way.
