Studies in Epic Poetry|
A study of intertextuality, the relations between literary texts, focusing on the epic tradition from Homer to Milton. We will examine the kinds of meaning created when one poet borrows, adapts, revises, alludes to, or imitates a precursor's work in the same genre. We will also question the relation between allusion and influence.
