benissimus wrote:How many written texts are there in Homeric? Is Homer the only recovered author who used this language, or are there other less-known writers?
Hesiod. Quintus Smyrnaeus, "The Fall of Troy." The Argonautica. The deranged and demented "Dionysiaca" of Nonnus (huge, Loeb edition is in 3 volumes).
subsequent Greek poetry draws on Epic vocabulary, morphological freedom and syntax to some degree or another, early elegy more, Sappho rather less, Attic drama enough that it's helpful to have Epic exposure.
