DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Das Epos Argonautika des Apollonios Rhodios (3. Jh. v. Chr.) hat bis heute keine zufriedenstellende Deutung und literarische Einordnung erfahren. Nach der communis opinio der Forschung brachte der alexandrinische Hellenismus eine poetologische Neuorientierung mit sich. Polis-Dichtung scheint durch gelehrt-unernste Kunstprodukte ersetzt. Diese Position mu� angesichts eines traditionell gestalteten, mythologischen Epos in eine Aporie geraten. Die vorliegende Monographie zeigt, da� die Argonautika, wie die zeitgen�ssische alexandrinische Literatur ueberhaupt, traditionelle epische Konzeptionen (Thematik, Menschen- und Heldenbild, G�tterkonzeption, Geschichtsauffassung) gezielt und pr�zisierend aufgreift. Dieses Ergebnis k�nnte Anla� geben zu einer Korrektur der derzeit g�ngigen, auf historisch unangemessenen Kategorien des 18. und 19. Jhs. beruhenden Bewertung des Hellenismus.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

As in her Tony Award–winning Metamorphoses, Mary Zimmerman transforms Greek mythology—here the story of Jason and the Argonauts—into a mesmerizing piece of theater. Encountering an array of daunting challenges in their “first voyage of the world,” Jason and his crew illustrate the essence of all such journeys to follow—their unpredictability, their inspiring and overwhelming breadth of emotion, their lessons in the inevitability of failure and loss. Bursts of humor and fantastical creatures enrich a story whose characters reveal remarkable complexity. Medea is profoundly sympathetic even as the seeds are sown for the monstrous life ahead of her, and the brute strength of Hercules leaves him no less vulnerable to the vicissitudes of love. Zimmerman brings to Argonautika her trademark ability to encompass the full range of human experience in a work as entertaining as it is enlightening.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This volume contains the papers of the "Groningen Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry 4 : Apollonius Rhodius" (Groningen, 2-4 September 1998). During the workshop a first draft of the papers was discussed and commented on by an international group of specialists in the field of Hellenistic poetry. The volume contains a wide range of articles and thus provides a survey of current developments in research on Apollonius. Several articles show how recent developments in modern literary criticism or linguistics can lead to new or more refined insights in our understanding of Apollonius' poetry. Others show how a renewed analysis of selected passages can contribute to our overall view of this poet. This volume is the fourth of a series. Every two years a Workshop on Hellenistic Poetry takes place at the University of Groningen, the papers of which are published in the series "Hellenistica Groningana".

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Beginning from Apollo is the sixth volume of Caeculus and contains the Proceedings of the sixth Fransum Colloquium, held on 8 March 2003. The theme of this colloquium was Apollonius Rhodius, the third c. BC poet who wrote the epic Argonautica as well as a number of other works, now preserved only in fragments. Apollonius' work was the subject of two doctoral dissertations completed at the University of Groningen, by Burkhard Scherer and by Iris Schmakeit, who have organised the colloquium and chosen the speakers. The papers in this volume share a focus on the position of Apollonius within the Greek cultural tradition. We see on the one hand how he engages the literary tradition before him and expects his readers to know the material of earlier poets, such as Homer, Pindar and the tragedians, and of the earlier Argonautic epics. On the other hand we get an impression of the way in which Apollonius incorporates antiquarian material, including traditions about obscure cults. Finally we learn how Apollonius and the Argonauts were the object of attention of later poets and scholars. Taken together the articles in this volume provide the reader with a good picture of Apollonius' central position in a long chain of reception and interaction.
