while conventional commentaries are usually finished and micro-textual, this narratological remark, first released in 2001, makes a speciality of one element of the Odyssey, its narrativity, and can pay lavish consciousness to the meso- and macro-levels. Drawing at the ideas of contemporary narratology in addition to the insights of Homeric scholarship, it discusses the function of narrator and narratees, tools of characterization and outline, plot-development, focalization, and the narrative exploitation of type-scenes. complete consciousness can be given to the constitution, characterizing functionality, and relation to the narrative context of the abundantly current speeches. ultimately, the various issues and motifs, which so subtly give a contribution to the solidarity of this lengthy textual content, are traced and evaluated. even if Homer's exceptional narrative paintings has regularly been renowned, this remark goals to put naked the ideas answerable for this brilliance. All Greek is translated and all technical phrases defined in a glossary.
