Aristotle's Poetics (335 BCE) is the earliest surviving work of dramatic theory and first surviving philosophical treatise on dramatic or literary theory. The work begins with a preliminary discourse on tragedy, epic poetry, and comedy as the chief forms of imitative poetry. By "imitative", Aristotle means the imitation of action in words as a creative process. He distinguishes comedy, tragedy, the satyr play, lyric poetry, and epic poetry by their differences in musical rhythm, harmony, meter, melody, nature of the characters, and the manner in which the narrative is presented. The great philosopher’s analysis of tragedy forms the main body of the work, and comprises discussions of plot, characters, thought, diction, melody, and spectacle. 1. Language: English.

Lotus Sutra
45,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Lotus Sutra was probably compiled in the 1st century BCE in Kashmir, India. The Lotus Sutra frames itself as a discourse delivered by the Buddha toward the end of his life. The tradition in Mahayana states that the sutra was written down at the time of the Buddha and stored for five hundred years in a realm of N gas. After this, they were said to have been reintroduced into the human realm at the time of the Fourth Buddhist Council in Kashmir. This tradition further claims that the sutra''s teachings are of a higher order than those contained in the gamas of the S tra Pi aka. It maintains that humankind had been unable to understand the sutra at the time of the Buddha, and hence the teaching had to be held back.

Rhetorical Studies in the "Aristocratea" of Dem...
46,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Demosthenes (384-322 BCE) is one of the great orators from ancient Greece. His speech Against Aristocrates is a common source for information on history and law, but it has received little attention as evidence for the orator's rhetorical skill. The speech shows Demosthenes' innovative use of mixture in composition that goes beyond Aristotelian categories. Demosthenes addresses multiple goals and employs a mixture of approaches to get the jury to oppose Aristocrates and the political agenda he represents. Dr. Papillon places Demosthenes in his historical and rhetorical context and analyzes how Demosthenes addressed the complicated rhetorical situation. The study continues the growth of rhetorical criticism by joining neo-Classical analysis with the insights of twentieth-century rhetorical criticism. It reveals the strengths of this often neglected speech: the powerful case Demosthenes made on the specific issue at hand and the development of a type of discourse that served as a model for effective persuasion.

Much Ado about Marduk
100,38 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Scholars often assume that the nature of Mesopotamian kingship was such that questioning royal authority was impossible. This volume challenges that general assumption, by presenting an analysis of the motivations,methods, and motifs behind a scholarly discourse about kingship that arose in the final stages of the last Mesopotamian empires. The focus of the volume is the proliferation of a literature that problematizes authority in the Neo-Assyrian period, when texts first begin to specifically explore various modalities for critique of royalty. This development is symptomatic of a larger discourse about the limits of power that emerges after the repatriation of Marduk's statue to Babylon during the reign of Nebuchadnezzar I in the 12th century BCE. From this point onwards, public attitudes toward Marduk provide a framework for the definition of proper royal behavior, and become a point of contention between Assyria and Babylonia. It is in this historical and political context that several important Akkadian compositions are placed. The texts are analyzed from a new perspective that sheds light on their original milieux and intended functions.

Religion and Ideology in Assyria
29,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Addressing the relationship between religion and ideology, and drawing on a range of literary, ritual, and visual sources, this book reconstructs the cultural discourse of Assyria from the third through the first millennium BCE. Ideology is delineated here as a subdiscourse of religion rather than as an independent category, anchoring it firmly within the religious world view. Tracing Assur's cultural interaction with the south on the one hand, and with the Syro-Anatolian horizon on the other, this volume articulates a "northern" cultural discourse that, even while interacting with southern Mesopotamian tradition, managed to maintain its own identity. It also follows the development of tropes and iconic images from the first city state of Uruk and their mouvance between myth, image, and royal inscription, historiography and myth, and myth and ritual, suggesting that, with the help of scholars, key royal figures were responsible for introducing new directions for the ideological discourse and for promoting new forms of historiography.

The Jehu Revolution
160,39 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This monograph re-evaluates the literary development of 2 Kings 9–10 within the context of the Deuteronomistic History. This undertaking opens with a thorough text and literary critical examination of the pericope, arriving at the conclusion that the narrative of 2 Kings 9–10 represents neither an insertion into the Deuteronomistic corpus, nor an independent literary tradition. Rather, when considering the Greek textual traditions of the biblical narrative (most especially B and Ant.), one can appreciate the narrative of Jehu’s revolution within the literary context of an extensive politically motivated narrative about the Israelite monarchy covering the period from the reigns of Jeroboam I to Jeroboam II. The identification of this pro-Jehuide source within the book of Kings enables a reliable dating into the 8th century BCE for much of the material in Kings focusing on the Northern Kingdom. Comparing this biblical narrative to other (mostly Mesopotamian and Syrian) texts relevant to Israelite history of the period advances the discourse about the veracity of the biblical narrative when contrasted with extrabiblical traditions and permits the plausible reconstruction of Israelite history spanning the 8th and 9th centuries BCE.
