Vergil's Aeneid and the Argonautica of Apollonius Rhodius
Virgil's debt to Homer is well known but, as this detailed and specialised analysis demonstrates, Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica , itself influenced by Homer, was a more immediate source. Assuming prior knowledge of the texts, Greek and Latin, Damien Nelis scrutinises and compares specific episodes, characters or passages of text from Virgil, Apollonius and Homer, providing a fresh perspective on all three authors, and looks for the reasoning behind Virgil's choice of sources. Extracts in Greek and Latin.
