Nonnus once vied with Homer for popularity; today his "Dionysiaca languishes in obscurity. "The Challenge of Epic offers a literary critical rehabilitation of Nonnus' fifth-century AD poem. It argues that modern neglect stems from a failure to appreciate the central position of allusion in late-antique poetry.Attention first focuses on intertextual allusion. It is argued that the poet draws on a plethora of allusions to the cycle of Greek mythology in order to imbue his specific narrative with a universal significance.
Focus then shifts to metapoetic allusion: the way in which Nonnus alludes self-consciously to the process of writing, and develops parallels between himself and his subject, Dionysus.Through an appreciation of Nonnus' alllusive strategies, the modern reader can again engage with the mind-bending challenge of the "Dionysiaca.
