RC posted a review today of Jewish Exegesis and Homeric Scholarship in Alexandria
Of interest to me is this:
In his conservative response to the approaches Alexandrian Homeric scholars developed, Aristeas provides a negative account, a mirror image of how some of his contemporaries would have been approaching the text.
A part of mimesis is antimimesis, or the reverse of the usual mimesis. I’m not sure if this would qualify, so I guess I’ll have to get the book…
