Title: Time in Ancient Greek Literature
Subtitle: Studies in Ancient Greek narrative, volume 2
Edited By: Irene J.F. de Jong
René Nünlist
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=28972
Series Title: Mnemosyne, Supplements
Description:

This is the second volume in a series of volumes which together will
provide an entirely new history of ancient Greek (narrative) literature.
Its organization is formal rather than biographical. It traces the history
of central narrative devices, such as the narrator and his narratees,time,
focalization, characterization, and space. It offers not only analyses of
the handling of such a device by individual authors, but also a larger
historical perspective on the manner in which it changes over time and is
put to different uses by different authors in different genres. The present
volume deals with time: changes in the order of events (analepsis versus
prolepsis), the speed of narration (events may be recounted scenically or
in the form of a summary), and frequency (events may be recounted once,
repeatedly, or not at all).
