The volume represents the second ‘chapter’ of the METra research project (Mapping Epic in Tragedy – Epica e tragedia greca: una mappatura), and contains the papers presented during the international workshop METra 2, held in Verona in June 2022. Carrying on with the lines of research whose first results were published in METra 1 (Lexis Supplements 11, 2022), this second collection of essays focuses on further aspects of the Homeric legacy in Attic tragedy. As in the first volume, the papers apply different disciplinary approaches, covering a wide range of topics: from metrical, linguistic, and stylistic features to matters of intertextuality and literary allusiveness, from the cultural, religious, and ethical values of archaic Greece – and their persistence in the classical age – to the ‘dialogue’ between ancient epics and modernity.
