Untimely Epic

Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica

Tom Phillips

  • Offers a new and conceptually distinctive interpretation of Apollonius Rhodius' Hellenistic epic
  • Explores the poem through the lens of readers' temporal experience, rather than focusing on the structure of the narrative
  • Combines philology and phenomenology in a series of readings of individual passages that transcend previous scholarship in both scope and detail
