Abstract

While many have written on the fragment of Stesichorus's Palinode presented to us in the Phaedrus, most of this work has focused on attempting to understand the function the palinode may have played within Stesichorus's work or his performance tradition, and on the nature of Stesichorus's offense against Helen, the offense which prompted her blinding of him and his subsequent creation of the Palinode fragment itself. Careful examination shows that the language it uses is carefully chosen to situate Stesichorus's work in opposition to epic and Panhellenic versions of the story of Helen.
