Overview

Anna Bonifazi examines the evocative power of linguistic elements in the Homeric text—in particular, the use of au- adverbs and particles to signal upcoming content and the ambiguous use of pronouns to evoke the complexity of Odysseus’ identity. She shows that, by deliberately merging distinct meanings, the text incorporates different viewpoints.
