Synopsis

This book is the first line-by-line analysis of enjambement and verse-internal breaks throughout the entire Iliad. Addressing larger, stylistic questions concerning genre, effect, and the manipulation and enjambing of formulae, Higbie examines a wide range of literary structures, including speeches, similes, battle scenes, and catalogues. A fundamental and thorough examination of enjambement in Homeric verse, this work will become a standard reference for scholars and students of Homer.
