Abstract

This chapter evaluates the relationship of the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite to the Iliadic tradition. Taking into consideration the methodological approach of Neoanalysis, it is suggested that the narrative of the Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite interacts with the narrative sequence of the Homeric aristeia. Attention is given throughout to the ways in which the Hymn to Aphrodite defines its own place in relation to the heroic traditions of Homeric epic. A thorough analysis of the Hymn's narrative structure is undertaken. [http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/view/10.1093/acprof:oso/9780199589036.001.0001/acprof-9780199589036-chapter-6]
