The gods of Homer's Iliad have troubled readers for millennia, with many features of their presentation seeming to defy satisfactory explanation. Homer's Divine Audience presents and explores a new 'metaperformative' approach to scenes of divine viewing, counsel, and intervention in the Iliad, arguing that the poet uses the Olympian gods to model and thereby manipulate the ongoing dynamics of performance and live reception.
