520    "A body of theory has developed about the role and 
       function of memory in creating and maintaining cultural 
       identity. Yet there has been no consideration of the rich 
       Mediterranean and Near Eastern traditions of laments for 
       fallen cities in commemorating or resolving communal 
       trauma. This volume offers new insights into the trope of 
       the fallen city in folk song and a variety of literary 
       genres. These commemorations reveal memories modified by 
       diverse agendas, and contain responses to the narrative 
       structures and motifs in which the meaning of memory-
       making about fallen cities resided, repurposing them or 
       even denying their meaning or silencing them. Opening a 
       new avenue of research into the Mediterranean genre of 
       city lament, this book examines references to, or re-
       workings of, otherwise lost texts or ways of commemorating
       fallen cities in the extant texts, and with greater 
       emphasis than usual on the point of view of the victors"--
