Myth and history in ancient Greece : the symbolic creation of a colony by Claude Calame( Book )

29 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in French and English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surely the ancient Greeks would have been baffled to see what we consider their "mythology." Here, Claude Calame mounts a powerful critique of modern-day misconceptions on this front and the lax methodology that has allowed them to prevail. He argues that the Greeks viewed their abundance of narratives not as a single mythology but as an "archaeology." They speculated symbolically on key historical events so that a community of believing citizens could access them efficiently, through ritual means. Central to the book is Calame's rigorous and fruitful analysis of various accounts of the foundation of that most "mythical" of the Greek colonies - Cyrene, in eastern Libya."--Jacket

Masks of authority : fiction and pragmatics in ancient Greek poetics by Claude Calame( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exploring a variety of literary texts representing different poetic genres, Claude Calame, an internationally known classicist, draws the lineaments of a real history of the means used by ancient Greek poets to create in their works a fictional authorship. In this collection of essays, he shows that they made of their poems, through various discursive strategies, texts to be performed, with the collective, ritual, and pragmatic values implicit in the ideas of craft and performance." "The result is a selective history of Greek poetics from the perspective of its authorial devices and social functions, its place between oral and written traditions."--Jacket

La vita sessuale e sentimentale dei greci non aveva uno svolgimento a senso unico. La considerazione di cui godeva l'istituto matrimoniale non escludeva affatto altre forme di soddisfacimento sessuale e affettivo, con una forte dimensione sociale, se non veicoli di poesia. I maggiori studiosi europei dell'età antica offrono un quadro completo, intrigante e spesso sorprendente, dei modi in cui l'esperienza amorosa era vissuta in Grecia

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En choisissant le thème du "Bestiaire d'Héraclès", la rencontre à l'origine de ce livre collectif entendait explorer, à travers la figure emblématique du héros des douze Travaux, un axe essentiel des rapports réels et imaginaires de l'homme avec son environnement naturel et culturel. Héraclès est à la fois le chasseur et la proie, le sacrificateur et la victime, dans un rapport dialectique avec les animaux qui, tantôt l'attirent vers le monde sauvage, tantôt sont gagnés, par son entremise, à la civilisation
