Overview

The Shield of Achilles and the Poetics of Ekpharsis by Andrew Sprague Becker, Sprague Andrew Becker

In 'The Shield of Achilles and the Poetics of Ekphrasis', Becker explores how Homeric poetry shapes its own reception: how Homer's reaction to a visual image creates his audience's response to a literary description. Becker also enters into a fiercely raging literary debate about the modernist, self-conscious elements of Homeric narrative.
