Seven are on Homeric poetry, six of which adopt a variety of approaches, from the metrical to the narratological to the oralist, in addressing the theme of “the epic middle.” One is on the fragments of the poet Manetho Astrologus.

Comprising articles selected through a process of double-blind peer review, the Yearbook provides a platform for cutting-edge, synthetic research on Ancient Greek epic from the Archaic Period to Late Antiquity (fifth century CE).
