Poetic Traditions in Homeric Epic (the Iliad and the Odyssey)

I intend to write a book that will argue that the poets of the Iliad and the Odyssey knew, used and even parodied shorter hexametrical genres (for example: oracles and laments) and that knowledge of this feature of Homeric poetics allows us important insights into a variety of Homeric scenes, for example Helen's use of pharmaka to assuage the grief of her dinner guests or Circe's instructions to Odysseus.
