Title: The Challenge of Epic. Allusive Engagement in the Dionysiaca of Nonnus. (Mnemosyne Supplementum, 210).
Description: Leiden, E.J. Brill, 2001. viii, 245 pp. Or. cloth w. dust-j. This book offers a literary-critical rehabilitation of Nonnus' fifth century AD epic. It argues for the centrality of allusive strategies, both intertextual and metapoetic, thus allowing a re-engagement with the challenge of reading late-antique poetry.
