Ian Worthington, Ph.D. (1987) in Classics, Monash Univeristy, is Senior Lecturer in Classics, University of Tasmania. He has published extensively on Greek history and oratory, including A Historical Commentary on Dinarchus (Michigan, 1992), Persuasion, Greek Rhetoric in Action (Routledge, 1994) and Ventures Into Greek History (OUP, 1994).
This volume deals with orality and literacy in ancient Greece and what consideration of these areas yields for that society, its literature, traditions and practices. Individual chapters focus on art, comedy, historiography, oratory, religion, rhetoric, philosophy, poetry, tragedy, and on orality in contemporary cultures (Greek and South African), which have a bearing on the ancient world.
By considering such factors as oral elements in various genres and practices and how these have shaped the texts we have today, as well as the extent of literacy and the impact of literacy on oral traditions and on singers/writers, the book presents another insight into ancient Greek society and its people.
