This article compares two examples (Greek and Hebrew) of what I call the "metapoetics of reception." These are instances in which the composition of a traditional work over the longue durée (here, the Iliad and the Hebrew scriptures) reflects the interaction by its authors with earlier textual stages of same work. I argue that understanding this dialectic of composition and reception is essential if one is to grasp aright the shifting meaning of key terms like κλέος or זרע.
