This study focuses on the reception of tragedy and the tragic in Hellenistic poetry. It illustrates how classical tragedy and the tragic idea were incorporated in the poems of Callimachus and Theocritus, Apollonius’ Argonautica, the iambic Alexandra and late Hellenistic poetry. It demonstrates that ‘the tragic’ was not doomed to failure in the postclassical world but lived on through the works of the great Alexandrian poets and their followers.

The poems of the Epic Cycle are assumed to be the reworking of myths and narratives which had their roots in an oral tradition predating that of many of the myths and narratives which took their present form in the Iliad and the Odyssey. The remains of these texts allow us to investigate diachronic aspects of epic diction as well as the extent of variation within it on the part of individual authors - two of the most important questions in modern research on archaic epic. They also help to illuminate the early history of Greek mythology. Access to the poems, however, has been thwarted by their current fragmentary state. This volume provides the scholarly community and graduate students with a thorough critical foundation for reading and interpreting them.

The categories of classical narratology have been successfully applied to ancient texts in the last two decades, but in the meantime narratological theory has moved on. In accordance with these developments, Narratology and Interpretation draws out the subtler possibilities of narratological analysis for the interpretation of ancient texts. The articles make a contribution to the theory of narrative as well as to our understanding of ancient literature including epic, lyric, tragedy and historiography.

"After its conquest by Alexander the Great in 332 BC, Egypt was ruled for the next 300 years by the Ptolemaic dynasty founded by Ptolemy I, one of Alexander's generals. With the defeat of Cleopatra VII, in 30 BC, Egypt became a province of the Roman Empire and later the Byzantine Empire. The thousand years from Alexander to the Arab conquest in AD641 are rich in archaeological interest and well documented in Greek, Egyptian, Latin and other languages. But travellers and others interested in the remains of this period are ill-served by most guide to Egypt. This book redresses the balance, with clear and concise descriptions related to documents and historical background." -- Bookjacket.
