The Alexandra attributed to Lykophron is a minor poetic masterpiece. At 1474 lines, it is one of the most important and notoriously difficult Greek poems dating from the hellenistic period (most likely the early second century BC). The poem's importance arises from the light which it sheds on Greek religion (in particular the role of women), on foundation myths and myths of colonial identity, and on local - especially Italian - cults and cult places. Thedifficulty of the poem stems from its unusual vocabulary - many words of ancient Greek are found only in this poem - and the riddling and meandering way in which most of the many mythological characters arereferenced. As well as providing the Greek text in full and its English translation, this volume provides the first ever full-length commentary in English on the poem.

The Alexandra is the only extant complete work of the Hellenistic poet and philologist Lycophron (3rd cent. BC). A crucial section of it deals with the fate of Odysseus. The present study undertakes an exact evaluation of Lycophron s style in order to investigate possible later emendations and the dating of the text. Lycophron s authorship of the Alexandra is not in doubt; the poem was not written in sections, nor was it composed later. The present volume contains the Greek text with a German translation, a detailed commentary and an introduction. The book concludes with two appendices, a bibliography and an index. "

This monograph is a literary study of Lycophron's Alexandra, whose obscurity, a quality notorious already in antiquity, has long hampered holistic approaches. Through a series of distinct but closely integrated literary studies of major aspects of the poem, including its style, its engagement with the traditions of epic and tragedy, and it's treatment of heroism and of the gods, the book explores the way the Alexandra reconfigures Greek mythology. In particular, as it is presented in Homeric epic and Athenian tragedy, in order to cast the Romans and their restoration of Trojan glory as the ultimate telos of history. In this sense, the poem emerges as an important intermediary between Homeric epic and Latin poetry, particularly Vergil's Aeneid. By rewriting specific features of the epic and tragic traditions, the Alexandra denies to Greek heroes the glory that was the traditional compensation for their suffering, while at the same time attributing to Cassandra's Trojan family honours framed in the traditional language of Greek heroism. In this sense, the figure of Cassandra, a prophetess traditionally gifted with the power of foresight but denied credibility, self-reflexively serves as a vehicle for exploring the potentials and limitations of poetry.
