The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

Book

Author: Richard Stoneman, Kyle Erickson and Ian Netton (eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789491431043

Publication year: 2012

The story of Alexander became the subject of legend in the medieval west, but was perhaps even more pervasive in the east. The Alexander Romance was translated into Syriac in the sixth century and may have become current in Persia as early as the third century AD. From these beginnings it reached into the Persian national epic, the Shahnameh, into Jewish traditions, and into the Qur’an and subsequent Arab romance. The papers in this volume all have the aim of deepening our understanding of this complex development.

Publication year: 2018

The papers assembled in this volume, which were originally presented at a conference at the University of Wrocław, Poland, in October 2015, all face the challenge of defining the Alexander Romance. Some focus on quite specific topics while others address more overarching themes. They form a cohesive set of approaches to the delicate positioning of the text between history and literature.

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

Book

Author: Marília P. Futre Pinheiro, Gareth Schmeling, Edmund P. Cueva

ISBN-13: 9789491431661

Despite the fact that postmodern aesthetics deny the existence or validity of genres, the tendency nowadays is to assume that there was in Antiquity a homogeneous group of works of narrative prose fiction that, despite their differences, displayed a series of recurrent, iterative, thematic, and formal characteristics, which allows us to label them novels. The papers assembled in this volume include extended prose narratives of all kind and thereby widen and enrich the scope of the canon.

Book

Author: R. Bracht Branham (ed.)

ISBN-10: 9077922008

ISBN-13: 9789077922002

Publication year: 2005

What is the significance of Bakhtin's work for our understanding of ancient literary culture and its role in the history of European literature? And, conversely, how did Bakhtin's lifelong interest in the classics shape his thinking about the dialogic nature of language and the carnivalesque traditions in culture?

Book

Author: Gottskálk 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.

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.
