Summary
This collection of essays explores how epic narratives negotiate, define, and transform genre-specific geographical configurations. A team of international scholars engages in an interdisciplinary discussion about how Greek and Roman epic poetry interacts with the historical and cultural dynamics of geography. The book brings together the world of Classical literature with current trends in examining the politics of spatial constructions
