Iliad 10: A Multitextual Approach
Textual Criticism of Oral Poetry
The Iliad and Odyssey as Oral Poetry
Fluidity vs. Rigidity and a Diachronic Approach to Homeric Poetry
When we discuss the relative multiformity of the Classical and Ptolemaic eras, we are speaking of periods (3) and (4) in Nagy’s scheme, the “definitive” period and “standardizing” period, respectively. We can also compare Nagy’s suggestion of the possibility of “transcripts” at this time to our discussion of the multiformity that we find in the textual transmission of Shakespeare, where we noted the influence of transcripts on the early printed editions of the plays.
