Summary and Info
The past few decades have seen the development of new critical methods with which the poetic and rhetorical dimensions of ancient Greek texts can be evaluated. In this volume, an international group of distinguished scholars comes together to examine how a wide range of ancient texts in different genres were able to assert their authority and claims to truth, often alluding to one another in subtle ways as they attempted to project their own superiority. A series of illuminating new readings is offered of both particular passages and whole works in the light of these new critical advances.
