9780198140580: Characterization and Individuality in Greek Literature
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The Greeks discovered the individual, it is said, but in what sense is this true? Characters in Greek literature may often seem strangely different from their modern counterparts: less idiosyncratic, less real, and with less psychological depth or interest. Personality traits seems to cluster more predictably in the characters of Greek authors than of those today. Despite the wide-ranging scope of this aspect of Greek literature, most previous discussions on Greek characterization and individuality have been limited to particular authors or genres. This volume attempts to illuminate the connections and mutual influences of the various genres in the portrayal of the individual. Ten essays explore the question of the distinction of character and personality (C. Gill); how the Greeks viewed the concept of character (S. Halliwell); characterization in epic (O. Taplin), in tragedy (P. E. Easterling, S. Goldhill, and J. Griffin), in comedy (M. Silk), in philosophical dialectic (L. Coventry), in oratory and rhetoric (D. A. Russell), and in biography (C. B. R. Pelling). This work will be invaluable to anyone interested in Greek literature and in the phenomenon of characterization and individuality in literature in general.

Revue de presse :

'I would especially commend Pelling's paper, an illuminating study of ancient biography with a neat twist in the tail ... stimulating collection' Times Literary Supplement

`the book contains important contributions to an important debate. It is well-researched, well-edited, and well-produced' Classical Review

`This is a splendid collection of papers' Peter Jones, The Times

'The volume coheres well, despite the diversity of views expressed, and several of these essays are likely to become standard reading for both classicists and students of drama.' Greece & Rome, Vol.37, No.2, Oct '90
