Book Information


Title: Allusion, Authority, and Truth
Subtitle: Critical Perspectives on Greek Poetic and Rhetorical Praxis
Edited By: Phillip Mitsis
Christos Tsagalis
Series Title: Trends in Classics - Supplementary Volumes vol. 7

Questions about how ancient Greek texts establish their authority, reflect
on each other, and project their own truths have become central for a wide
range of recent critical discourses. In this volume, an influential group
of international scholars examines these themes in a variety of poetic and
rhetorical genres. The result is a series of striking and original readings
from different critical perspectives that display the centrality of these
questions for understanding the poetic and rhetorical aims of ancient Greek
texts. Characterized by a combination of close attention to philological
detail and theoretical sophistication, the essays in this volume make a
compelling case for this kind of focused, critically informed dialogue
about the nature of ancient textual "praxis". Students of classical
literature will find a wealth of critical insights and challenging new
readings of many familiar texts.
