Book Description

Nonnus, a 5th-century poet from Panopolis (Egypt), composed the Dionysiaca, a mythological epic in 48 books, as well as a paraphrase of the Gospel of St John. He has long been a neglected and misrepresented figure. These 24 essays by an international team of experts place the poet in his time’s educational, philosophical, religious and cultural context. The book inaugurates a new era of research for Nonnus and Late Antique poetics on the whole.
