Metaphor, Allegory, and the Classical Tradition: Ancient Thought and Modern Revisions by G. R. Boys-Stones
English | ISBN: 0199240051 | 2003 | 320 pages | PDF | 0,9 MB


How closely do the theoretical notions of ""metaphor"" and ""allegory"" developed by ancient rhetoricians reflect the practice of Classical writers? This question is tackled through eleven new papers by a team of distinguished academics.

Ancient theories of metaphor are compared with twentieth-century alternatives; theory is tested against practice; and allegory-a distinctive though neglected feature of ancient literature and philosophy-is explored against the background of the rhetoricians' claim that it is one form of metaphor.
