This book draws on studies of movement, gesture, and early film to offer a series of readings on repetition through the body in Homer. Each chapter presents an argument based on a specific posture, action or gesture (falling, running, leaping, standing, and crouching), through which to rethink epic practices of embodiment and formularity.
