Der Epische Cyclus 2 Volume Set

Friedrich Gottlieb Welcker (1784-1868) was one of the most engaging and creative of German philologists during the formative period of modern classical scholarship; 'one of the heroes', Wilamowitz called him. Art, poetry and religion were to him all the same object of study, and a key to the world of Greek imagination and feeling. His attempt to grasp the meaning of all Greek mythology gave decisive impetus to a still vigorous tradition. This work (in two volumes, first published 1835 and 1849) is his effort to recover the lost epics of the archaic period, and the conditions of their performance and transmission. If his adventurous reconstructions do not always command assent, they offer many brilliant observations and insights in the making. His influence has been as diffuse as it is unacknowledged; again and again one finds on reading him that Welcker said it first.
