The volume collects the contributions presented at the international workshop METra(Mapping Epic in Tragedy – Epica e tragedia greca: una mappatura), held at the University of Verona in May 2021. The aim of these Proceedings is to investigate the rich legacy of archaic Greek Epic (primarily Homer) inherited by Attic Tragedy. All essays focus on this topic both from a variety of perspectives and from a multidisciplinary standpoint, ranging from linguistic, metrical, and philological exegesis to literary, stylistic, and dramaturgical interpretations, as well as from anthropological and religious approaches to the cultural and intellectual history of archaic and classical Greece. Although inevitably partial, this volume provides a multifaceted mapping of the fertile, constant, and innovative reinterpretations of epic poetry offered by the tragedians of the 5th century BC.
