Modes of flow

Danish. For a review of Anders Søgaard’s poetical and postmodern retelling of the Iliad, I argue that Homer’s epic can be read as a flurry of interconnections. The epic pursues a wealth of different associations to push the plot restlessly on: the movement of weapons, words, people, objects, eyes, memories, and myths are just some of the links that are used in the epic to weave the complex landscape of war into one single presentation, one unstoppable flow of rhythmical cadence.
