However, scattered and scanty though they may be, there are allusions to threats of rebellion which challenge Zeus supremacy. This book examines these passages, drawn from Homer, Hesiod and the Homeric Hymns, to offer some new interpretations. While focusing on the theme of cosmic/divine strife, it becomes clear that hints of lost legends underlie these texts. Tracing their hidden logic helps to improve our understanding of early Greek poetry.
