  1. Wedding Imagery in the Talos Episode: Apollonius Rhodius, Argonavtica 4.1653–88.Sarah Cassidy - 2018 - Classical Quarterly 68 (2):442-457.
    AtArgon.4.1653–88, Medea steps forward among the Argonauts and asserts that their harbourage on Crete will not be blocked by the bronze giant Talos, who stands menacingly throwing rocks at their ship. She claims that she alone can subdue him, and then steps forward and proceeds to do so. Using a sequence of ‘magical’ ritualistic acts, she causes Talos to scrape his vulnerable heel on a rock and fall down dead, as the ichor pours from his wound. This scene is the (...)

  • Iphias: Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 1.311–61.Damien Nelis - 1991 - Classical Quarterly 41 (1):96-105.
    As an Apollo-like Jason leaves home to start the long journey in quest of the Golden Fleece a strange incident occurs: The first thing to be said about this scene is that it is almost certainly an invention of Apollonius Rhodius.

  • Apollonius, Argonautica 4.167–70 and Euripides' Medea.Virginia Knight - 1991 - Classical Quarterly 41 (1):248-250.
    The study of Homeric echoes and allusions in the Argonautica has overshadowed the influence of other literature, even when, as with tragedy, such influence is clear. The easiest framework for studying allusions to tragedy in Apollonius is comparison with the different types of allusion to Homer. Situations in the epic may recall situations and relationships in tragedy, and verbal similarities to passages in tragedy are also identifiable, despite differences of dialect and metre. The latter are often enhanced by rare words, (...)

  • Valerius' Flavian Argonautica.P. Ruth Taylor - 1994 - Classical Quarterly 44 (1):212-235.
    ‘[Valerius'] Argonautica is a story of high adventure, not a poème à thèse’: so stated Garson in 1965. Strand later added that the essential nature of this poem and the choice of subject-matter was determined by poetic inability; he describes the prooemium to Valerius' Argonautica as ‘a recusatio: the theme of the fall of Jerusalem is beyond his powers, and it would instead be treated by Domitian who was fit for such an arduous task; Valerius had to content himself with (...)

  • Ovid's Heroides 6: Preliminary Scenes From the Life of an Intertextual Heroine.David J. Bloch - 2000 - Classical Quarterly 50 (1):197-209.
    Ovid regarded the Epistulae Heroidum as a collection with a consistent theme. He indicates as much at Am. 2.18.18–26, where he describes the unified conception of nine or ten of the Heroides as the result of Amor's insistence that he be an elegiac poet.
