Summary
The gods of the Iliad have long troubled readers, with many features of their presentation defying satisfactory explanation. This volume presents a new 'metaperformative' approach to the poem's scenes of divine viewing, arguing that the poet uses the gods to model and thereby manipulate the ongoing dynamics of performance and live reception
