Abstract

Iris' Role in Iliad 23 ??? ?d??: Observations on Iris' Role in Iliad 23 Timothy P. Hofmeister least as evidence of "weakness in narration," the scene of Iris and the Winds in Iliad Condemned by Analyst critics early in this century as either interpolation or at 23.192-212 has not fared any better through the rest of the century.1 Analysis gave way to Neo-analysis, and to "genetical" investigations.2 In what is the most influential modern treatment of the scene, Kakridis also questioned the scene's intrinsic poetic value and its appropriateness within the context of Patroklos' funeral. Kakridis' study--chapter ??? of his Homeric Researches--examined the scene for latent signs of other epic material. Kakridis concluded: 1 See C. Hentze, "Das Auftreten der Iris im zweiten, dritten, und fünften Gesänge der Bias," Philologus 62 (1903) 321-38. Hentze wrote: "Die Irisscene in ? aber ist an sich in dem Maße befremdend und enthält so auffallende Züge im Besonderen, daß das Urtheil Kammers aesthet.
