Overview

Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica is a Greek epic poem dating from the 3rd century BC which tells the story of the quest by Jason and the Argonauts for the Golden Fleece. This book examines the poem from a number of perspectives, exploring thematic and narrative complexities arising primarily from the poet's use of language. It breaks new ground in the critical interpretation of the Argonautica and, as such, is an indispensable addition to mainstream literary criticism of the poem.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of the hardback: '... the only way to fully appreciate this book is reading it from cover to cover ... Clare is a writer of considerable skill and finesse ... the greatest merit of this book is perhaps in Clare's individual close readings of verbal and thematic links between passages, both intra- and intertextual ...I found Clare's interpretations invariably stimulating ... The Path of the Argo has many things to say about many topics, and should be on the reading list of all interested in the Argonautica.' BMCR
