Archaic and Classical Greek Epigram. Contextualisation and Literarisation


Archaic and Classical Greek Epigram. Contextualisation and Literarisation. Edited by: Baumbach, M; Petrovic, A; Petrovic, I (2009). Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

Abstract

With contributions written by leading experts in the field, this volume
explores the dialogue between archaic and classical Greek epigrams
and their readers. The authors examine questions surrounding the
identity of the speakers and the addressees. They also discuss the
spatial, religious, historical and political contexts of epigram, as well
as aspects of intertextuality, poetic variation and the creation of
epigrammatic sub-genres. Collectively the volume demonstrates that
the dominant view of epigram as a genre that became literary and
artistic only in the Hellenistic period has to be revised. Archaic and
classical Greek epigrams did not simply serve the objects they describe
but also demonstrate a high degree of aesthetic and literary achievement.
This volume breaks new ground in the study of the genre and
is important for scholars of classics, archaeology, epigraphy and
papyrology.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
