Lo stile di Odisseo: l'anafora negli Apologoi

Abstract : Odysseus’ style: the anaphora in the Apologoi. The aim of this paper is to analyse the anaphora in the Apologoi section of the Odyssey (book IX-XII). From the examined examples (IX 29-36, X 340-342, XI 206-209, XII 189-191), it is possible to conclude that in the poem this rhetorical device was intentionally used as a distinctive feature of Odysseus’ speeches. In the Odyssey this figure of speech is frequently used by a character who has the important role of storyteller, so it is not difficult to recognize in Homer a precise awareness of these effects of the anaphora.
