This book offers a probing and much needed examination of 'the tragic' as a concept distinct from tragedy as a genre. With "Homer and the Dual Model of the Tragic", Yoav Rinon fills a persistent gap in the study of ancient Greek literature. Too often in the study of ancient drama have writers and critics conflated the concept of 'the tragic' with tragedy as a genre, muddying the important differences between the two. By concentrating on the notion of the tragic as a characteristic, rather than on tragedy as a genre, Rinon has opened a fresh and important new perspective.In order to emphasize the independence of the tragic from the tragedy, Rinon focuses on two tragic epics, the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey". Rinon's integration of classical philology, narratology, and post-colonial studies makes "Homer and the Dual Model of the Tragic" a widely interdisciplinary book, one that will appeal to both specialists and undergraduates in a variety of fields.
