Baukje van den Berg studies the rhetorical analysis of the Iliad by Eustathos of Thessalonike, a widely celebrated intellectual, teacher and orator in twelfth-century Byzantium. More specifically, she explores Eusthatios’s analysis of the composition of the Iliad. He looked at the way Homer selected, arranged and presented his subject matter. Van den Berg’d aim is to shed light on the rhetorical programme that Eusthatios reads into the Iliad and to identify lessons that he wishes to teach his readers.
