Heracles in Early Greek Epic examines the protean nature of the greatest Greek hero, Heracles in Homeric and Hesiodic poetry, as well as in fragmentary epics such as Creophylus’ Oichalias Halosis, Pisander’s Heracleia, and Panyassis’ Heracleia. Several contributors explore Heracles’ associations with heroes in Near-Eastern literature and reflections in early epic about his involvement in the first sack of Troy, the tale of Hesione and the ketos, the war against the Meropes on Cos, and the sack of Oechalia. Other contributors study his role in other Archaic and Classical epics such as those written by Creophylus, Pisander, and Panyassis.

Abstract

The history of the Homeric Question stretches from antiquity to the present. I focus on its modern phase and its inauguration of the scientific study of Homeric poetry. The aim of this historical sketch is (a) to offer an up-to-date, concise, and critical presentation of the Homeric Question and (b) to review the main issues explored by the various schools of interpretation.
