Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica is a Greek epic poem dating from the 3rd century BC which tells the story of the quest by Jason and the Argonauts for the Golden Fleece. This book examines the poem from a number of perspectives, exploring thematic and narrative complexities arising primarily from the poet's use of language. It breaks new ground in the critical interpretation of the Argonautica and, as such, is an indispensable addition to mainstream literary criticism of the poem.
