This publication issues the way in which we read--or quite, think we're listening to--ancient Greek and Latin poetry. via transparent and penetrating research Mark Edwards exhibits how an figuring out of the results of notice order and meter is key for appreciating the that means of classical poetry, composed for listening audiences.
The first of 4 chapters examines Homer's emphasis of sure phrases through their positioning; a passage from the Iliad is analyzed, and a poem of Tennyson illustrates English parallels. the second one considers Homer's suggestions of disguising the holiday within the narrative whilst altering a scene's position or characters, to keep up his audience's consciousness. within the 3rd we study, partially via an English translation matching the rhythm, how Aeschylus selected and tailored meters to arouse listeners' feelings. the ultimate bankruptcy examines how Latin poets, fairly Propertius, infused their language with ambiguities and a number of meanings. An appendix examines using classical meters through twentieth-century American and English poets.
Based at the author's Martin Classical Lectures at Oberlin collage in 1998, this publication will improve the appreciation of classicists and their scholars for the giant chances of the languages they learn, translate, and educate. because the Greek and Latin quotations are translated into English, it's going to even be welcomed via non-classicists as an reduction to knowing the big impact of old Greek and Latin poetry on sleek Western literature.
