The heroic paradox : essays on Homer, Sophocles, and Aristophanes by Cedric Hubbell Whitman( Book )

13 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The late Cedric H. Whitman was widely acclaimed for his studies of classical poetry. In the ten years before his death in 1979 he gave a number of lectures in which he developed his concept of Greek heroic humanism. Five of the six essays collected here are edited from the texts of those lectures. According to Whitman, the tragic hero in Greek literature confronts crucial moral questions and chooses to suffer and die rather than to submit or conform to answers dictated by religious dogmatism. Whitman's first two essays explore this idea in a discussion of the "Iliad", Aeschylus, and Sophocles. The next two essays study the poetic artistry of the "Iliad" in terms of the techniques of oral narrative, the symbolism of Homer, and the character of Achilles. Sophocles' "Antigone" is the subject of another essay in which Whitman focuses on the conjunction of the divine will, the natural world, and the heroism of Antigone herself. The final essay restores Aristophanes to his rightful place as a poet of the city. -- From publisher's description

CALLIMACHUS of Cyrene, born c.310 B.C., after studying philosophy at Athens, became a teacher of grammar and poetry at Alexandria. Among his pupils were the famous Eratosthenes, Aristophanes of Byzantium, and Apollonius the Poet. King Ptolemy II Philadelphus of Egypt (reigned 285-274) made him when still young a librarian in the new University library at Alexandria where he prepared a great catalogue of the books in it, but did not become Director (Chief Librarian). He had a feud in defence of short poems against the spacious epic favoured by Apollonius who left Alexandria for Rhodes because of the quarrel. Callimachus was author of much poetry and many works in prose, but not much survives. His hymns and epigrams are given with works by Aratus and Lycophron in another volume (No. 129) of Loeb Classical Library. In the present volume are included (poetry only) fragments of the Aetia (Causes) - aetiological legends concerning Greek history and customs: of a book of Iambi which followed the Aetia: of the four lyric poems which it seems came next: also 147 fragments of the epic poem Hecale which described Theseus victory over the bull which infested Marathon: fragments of minor epic and elegaic poems: and fragments of uncertain location
