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.

"Die Erzahlung von Meleagros" offers a detailed analysis of the origin and development of the myth of the Calydonian boar-hunt. It is the first complete presentation of all literary sources of the Calydonian hunt, as well as of other adventures of its central hero Meleagros. The myth started off as an "aition" for the cult of Artemis Laphria and was taken up by the epic tradition long before Homer.

Der zweite Band des Handbuchs der griechischen Literatur der Antike umfaßt die Periode von 400 v. Chr. bis zur Zeitenwende. Er schließt in zweifacher Hinsicht eine wichtige Lücke im Handbuch der Altertumswissenschaften: Zum einen ist jener Band von Wilhelm Schmids und Otto Stählins Geschichte der griechischen Literatur, der die Literatur des größten Teils des 4. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. – Platon, Aristoteles, die klassische Rhetorik sowie die Geschichtsschreibung nach Thukydides und die Mittlere Komödie – enthalten sollte, nie erschienen, und zum anderen ist Band VII 2,1, der mit 320 v. Chr. einsetzt, in vielerlei Hinsicht überholt. Zahlreiche Papyrusfunde aus dem Sand Ägyptens haben zudem in den letzten 100 Jahren das Bild dieser Epoche entscheidend bereichert: Komödien Menanders, große Bruchstücke aus den Werken des Kallimachos oder auch – erst vor kurzem – Poseidipps Epigramme. Außerdem hat in der Forschung eine neue, methodisch und theoretisch begründete Betrachtung weiter Bereiche der Literatur nach 400 v. Chr. stattgefunden. Dies betrifft vor allem die hellenistische Dichtung und die Komödie nach Aristophanes, die auf der Basis neuer Ausgaben nun erst in ihrer Stellung in der Geschichte der griechischen Literatur angemessen gewürdigt werden können. Die Neubewertung kommt insbesondere der Fachliteratur zugute, die in diesem Band in einem umfassenden Kapitel in all ihren verschiedenen Aspekten dargestellt wird. Wie Band 1 des Handbuchs der griechischen Literatur ist auch Band 2 nach Gattungen und literarischen Formen gegliedert.

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.

The essays in this volume explore paradigms of divinely inspired and legitimated writers in their situationally determined functions and roles in changing historical contexts. The subjects addressed include the unique hermeneutics of prophetic writing, the ways in which prophetic speech is legitimized, caveats against false prophecy, as well as critical-ironic attitudes toward ancient prophetic traditions.
