"The volume, like YAGE 1 (2017), shows clear interpretive focus on the Homeric epics, but individual contributions pursue innovative and ingenious approaches to the poems, often drawing on theoretical frameworks from other fields of scholarly research. The result is an anthology of current scholarship with an impressive breadth of topics ranging from minor interpretive problems to questions addressing the development and tradition of the genre as a whole." - Fabian Horn, in: BMCR 2019.03.18
"In conclusion, the papers presented above clearly explore variable aspects of the archaic epic tradition mixed with Greek tragedy, ancient mythographers, Empedocles and the concept of Fandom and Fan studies. There is much more in this volume of YAGE to provoke further thoughts and reflections about archaic Greek epic poetry. (…) there is coherence and power to the method in general, and it is a valuable series journal, not only for scholars or students, but also for anyone who wants to investigate thoroughly epic reception from archaic to late antique literature." - Manolis Spanakis, in: CJ-Online, 2019.11.08
