Overview


Homeric Conversation is the first full-length study of conversation in the Homeric poems. Deborah Beck argues that conversation should be considered a traditional Homeric type scene, alongside recognized types such as arrival, sacrifice, battle, and hospitality. Drawing on both linguistics and previous work on type scenes and oral aesthetics, the book describes the typical conversational patterns that characterize a range of situations, including one-on-one conversation, formal assemblies, battlefield encounters, and laments. Departures from these typical patterns for conversation provide the basis for a wide-ranging, closely argued aesthetic analysis of repetition and variation in the Homeric epics.

    I Love Deborah Beck

    Deborah Beck was my professor this past fall at Swarthmore College, and she is an amazing teacher. If she can shed as much knowledge as she did on 9 freshman in one semester (and make it exciting too), then I can only imagine the great things she can do with an entire book.
