Lindian Chronicle and the Greek Creation of Their Past by Carolyn Higbie

Book Description

Carolyn Higbie uses an inscription of the first century BC from Lindos to study the ancient Greeks and their past. The inscription contains two inventories. The first catalogues some forty objects given to Athena Lindia by figures from the mythological past (including Heracles, Helen, and Menelaus) and the historical past (including Alexander the Great and Hellenistic figures). The second catalogues three epiphanies of Athena Lindia to the townspeople when they were in need of her assistance. By drawing on anthropological approaches as well as archaeological and literary evidence, this book explores what was important to the Greeks about their past, how they reconstructed it, and how they made use of it in their present.

Measure and Music by Carolyn Higbie Measure and Music, Hardback (November 1990)

The foundation of this book is a line-by-line analysis of the "Iliad" with regard not only to enjambement but also to verse-internal breaks. The study presents analyses on the entire poem rather than a selection of verses.
