Book

Author: Michael Paschalis, Stavros Frangoulidis, Stephen Harrison, Maaike Zimmerman (eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789077922279

The parallel readings of the present volume explore various issues in Greco-Roman fiction: political accommodation in coming-of-age novels, the language and practice of magic, narratives of failure, textual considerations and narrative meaning, hidden authors, proposals and criteria for dating, the access to knowledge, plot structures, religion and narrative, the fortunes of Athenian Hellenism, vision and narrative, attitudes towards Roman imperial rule, and the motif of the stolen cup.

The Recollections of Encolpius

The Recollections of Encolpius

Book

Author: GottskŠlk Jensson

ISBN-10: 9080739081

ISBN-13: 9789080739086

Publication year: 2004

The present study offers a reading of the Satyrica as the mimetic performance of its fictional auctor Encolpius; as an ancient "road novel" told from memory by a Greek exile who relates how on his travels through Italy he had dealings with people who told stories, gave speeches, recited poetry and made other statements, which he then weaves into his own story and retells through the performance technique of vocal impersonation.

Xenophon's Ephesiaca

Xenophon's Ephesiaca

Book

Author: Aldo Tagliabue

ISBN-13: 9789492444127

Publication year: 2017

By offering a definition of the Ephesiaca as a paraliterary narrative, this monograph sheds new light on this novel and its position within the Greek novelistic corpus, whilst also offering a more nuanced understanding of intertextuality and paraliterature.
