Thucydidean Narrative and Discourse, Hardback Book

Thucydidean Narrative and Discourse Hardback

Edited by Richard Hamilton, Eleanor Dickey, Jeffrey S. Rusten

Part of the Cultural Legacies series


Mabel Lang's long career as a scholar and teacher has given her a unique perspective on one of the most important authors in western literature.

Thucydidean Narrative and Discourse brings together several of her most thoughtful papers on figures and issues including the 400, Cleon, and Alcibiades, and joins them with new material on narrative technique. The assembled papers are an important complement to Professor Lang's pathbreaking study of Herodotean narrative.

Together with introductory essays by the volume's editors, these papers will enable students of historiography in general to obtain a better understanding of how Thucydides engaged his audience.

Although they were written over many years, the papers share a consistency of insight that makes them continually relevant to all who endeavor to understand the literary art of Thucydides.
