Books By Author Gregory Nagy
Masterpieces of Metonymy, Paperback (January 2016)
Gregory Nagy analyzes metonymy as a mental process that complements metaphor. If metaphor is a substitution of something unfamilar for something familiar, metonymy connects something familiar with something else already familiar. Nagy offers close readings of over one hundred examples of metonymy in the arts of Greek and other cultures.
Ancient Greek Hero in 24 Hours, Hardback (July 2013)
The ancient Greeks' concept of "the hero" was very different from what we understand by the term today. In 24 installments, based on the Harvard course Gregory Nagy has taught and refined since the 1970s, The Ancient Greek Hero in 24 Hours explores civilization's roots in Classical literature, a lineage that continues to challenge and inspire us.
Homer the Preclassic, Hardback (February 2012)
Considers the development of the Homeric poems - in particular "The Iliad" and "Odyssey" - during the time when they were still part of the oral tradition. This title traces the evolution of rival 'Homers' and the different versions of Homeric poetry in this pretextual period.
Homer the Classic, Paperback (February 2010)» View all books by Gregory Nagy
Deals with the reception of Homeric poetry from the fifth through the first century BCE. This book, which centers on ancient concepts of Homer as the author of a body of poetry, is not to reassess the oral poetic heritage of Homeric poetry but to show how it became a classic in the days of the Athenian empire and later.
