  • Hellenistic oratory

    continuity and change

    Description matérielle : viii, 420 pages
    Description : Note : Includes bibliographical references (pages 369-406) and indexes
    Abstract : "Hellenistic oratory remains an elusive subject as not one Greek speech has survived from the end of the fourth century BC until the beginning of the first century AD. This collection of fourteen interdisciplinary essays offers a wide-ranging study of the different ways in which Hellenistic oratory can be approached. Written by a team of leading scholars in the field, it examines the different kinds of evidence which shed light on the dynamic character of oratory during the Hellenistic period. All essays stress the pervasive influence of Hellenistic oratory and survey its different manifestations in diverse literary genres and socio-political contexts, especially the dialogue between the Greek oratorical tradition and the developing oratorical practices at Rome"

  • Commentary on Demosthenes "Against Leptines"

    Description matérielle : 1 vol. (XI-489 p.)
    Description : Note : Contient le texte grec avec traduction anglaise en regard. - Bibliogr. p. 459-482. Index
    Includes bibliographical references (pages 459-482) and index
    Abstract : "Against Leptines is one of the most important speeches delivered by the famous Athenian orator Demosthenes, in which he argues against the abolishment of all honorific exemptions (ateleiai) from festival liturgies in the city of Athens. A source of information for Athenian history in the mid-fourth century BC, the speech broaches a number of issues vital to our understanding of classical Athenian society, politics, and legislation. The questions of public honours, civic ideology, and the themes of justice and injustice are central to the speech and have led to its popularity with audiences ever since the classical period. Kremmydas' volume is the first detailed commentary on the speech in any language since the 19th century. With an extensive introduction which lays the foundations for the key elements discussed in Against Leptines, the addition of the Greek text (adapted from M.R. Dilts's Oxford Classical Text of Demosthenes 20), and a facing English translation makes the commentary even more accessible to a wider scholarly audience. While the important historical and complex legal issues are given appropriate attention in the commentary, a special emphasis is given to the elucidation of the orator's rhetorical strategy and argumentation."--Publisher's website
