Some Comments about the Epic Caesura

Postby annis » Fri Dec 17, 2004 2:04 am

In response to some questions about the caesura in the Odyssey-a group, I was able to indulge in my taste for all things metrical.

In Some Comments on the Epic Caesura I give a possible origin for the heroic hexameter which accounts for the caesura, and then analyze the first 21 lines of Iliad A with special attention on interesting things that happen around the caesura.

I'm no critic. But I think this comment should be added to the Textkit Tutorials list, isn't it?
