Die Arbeit stellt die erstmalige Teilkommentierung (Verse 1–219) des ersten Buches der Posthomerica des Quintus Smyrnaeus dar, welches in Fortsetzung der Ilias das Geschick der Amazonenkönigin Penthesileia vor Troja berichtet. Auf essayhafte Einleitungen zu den einzelnen inhaltlichen Einheiten folgt der jeweilige Lemmakommentar. Vorangestellt sind der Arbeit eine Einleitung zum Gesamtwerk sowie zu Posthomerica 1. Diese setzt sich u.a. vertieft mit Sprache und Formgestalt des Werks sowie dessen Bedeutung im Kontext der Zweiten Sophistik auseinander. Ferner werden die narrative Struktur des ersten Buches analysiert und die Amazonomachie vor dem Hintergrund zeitgenössischer Geschlechter- und Identitätsdiskurse in einen konkreten Rezeptionskontext gestellt.
Only a few of Seneca's tragedies could be dated exactly so far. This study presents an ' often surprising ' sequence of all the plays. It analyses thoughts and motives, variations of which are to be found in two (or more) tragedies, in order to determine which is the earlier, and which the later version. This has significant consequences for any attempt to find references to contemporary events in the plays.
