Sul testo del settimo libro di Quinto Smirneo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper aims to examine the text of the seventh book of Quintus Smyrnaeus’ Posthomerica, the object of a recent commentary by G. P. Tsomis. Particular attention will be paid to problems concerning textual criticism and exegesis, contained in the book, which recounts the events connected with Neoptolemus’ intervention in the Trojan War. An issue concerning the narrative structure and technique will also be addressed: the poet appears to intentionally imitate Homer not only from a linguistic and lexical point of view, but also in the handling of contemporary events, in which connection Zielinski’s law may be seen as applying to Quintus’ work.
