    DescriptionNagy challenges the widely held view that the development of lyric poetry in Greece represents the rise of individual innovation over collective tradition. Arguing that Greek lyric represents a tradition in its own right, Nagy shows how the form of Greek epic is in fact a differentiation of forms found in Greek lyric. (Criticism)

    Review quote
    An original and substantial contribution. This is Nagy at his best, in full control of the primary and secondary material, helping us see it in a new and revealing light. Michael N. Nagler, University of California, Berkeley "A fascinating book by a bold and learned scholar, displaying an impressive breadth of knowledge, interest, and reading... One admires the way Nagy gathers together strands of information usually examined in isolation and spins them into a coherent and persuasively presented argument. American Journal of Philology
