Homer and the Poetics of Hades

George Alexander Gazis

  • Offers a new perspective on the epic past in the Iliad and the Odyssey through the exposition of an alternative 'poetics of Hades'
  • Draws on close readings of both epic poems to support the unique approach to the role and function of Hades as a poetic resource
  • Divides discussion thematically between the Iliad and the Odyssey and maps the development of the argument to the progression of the poems throughout
