Book excerpt/synopsis : "Die Erzahlung von Meleagros" offers a detailed analysis of the origin and development of the myth of the Calydonian boar-hunt. It is the first complete presentation of all literary sources of the Calydonian hunt, as well as of other adventures of its central hero Meleagros. The myth started off as an "aition" for the cult of Artemis Laphria and was taken up by the epic tradition long before Homer.
