Die Jugend des Dionysos: Die Ampelos-Episode in den "Dionysiaka" des Nonnos von Panopolis

Nicole Kröll
book: Die Jugend des Dionysos
Volume 62 in the series Millennium-Studien / Millennium Studies

The Ampelos episode is a critical scene in the Dionysiaca of Nonnos, the Late Antique poet. The death and transfiguration of the satyr Ampelos lends Dionysus his principal attributes – the grapevine and wine. The book uses a detailed literary analysis of the Nonnos episode to present the forms of poetic language in the Dionysika and put them in the context of the literary-aesthetic forms of Late Antiquity.
