Critical sites about Dionysiaca

Fear of Sex in Nonnus’ Dionysiaca
“This article begins with a consideration of five rapes that occur in Nonnus’ poem, three committed by Zeus, two by Dionysus. It will then consider other incidents and material, and argue that the psychology which informs the poem contains a large element of fear of sex, specifically, of male intercourse with women. Women in the poem, too, have reason to fear sex when it is threatened or imposed by rape, as it often is, but it is the problem from the male perspective that Nonnus illuminates. The psychopathology on display is to be found in perversions or paraphilias such as fetishism and voyeurism, which are overwhelmingly the province of males.”
