Perfect for acing essays, tests, and quizzes, as well as for writing lesson plans.

      To Aristotle’s great achievement as a literary theorist and critic, and to his treatise on the Poetics where his genius in this field is principally to be found, Habib pays the following high compliment: “The Poetics is usually recognized as the most influential treatise in the history of literary criticism.”. The works collected in this volume have profoundly shaped the history of criticism in the Western world: they created much of the terminology still in use today and formulated enduring questions about the nature and function of literature. In Ion, Plato examines the god-like power of poets to evoke feelings such as pleasure or fear, yet he went.

    Let’s move on to your second choice, Aristotle’s Children by Richard E Rubenstein. This is a Aristotle book about some of the ways in which his thought impacted on later generations. It’s almost a cliché that he was known as ‘the philosopher’ throughout much of the medieval period as if there had never been another one.   Aristotle's main contribution to criticism may well be the idea that poetry is after all an art with an object of its own, that it can be rationally understood and reduced to an intelligible set.

Huxley, m.r.i.a. The Queen's University of Belfast [Received, 21 July, Read, 22 November, Published, 27 April, ] Abstract In his Homeric Problems Aristotle defended Homer against detractors.

One method of defence was to demonstrate that in certain passages the poet. Porphyry's Homeric Questions was written in the 3rd century A.D. in response to a friend's request that the philosopher try to recall some of their leisure discussions about problems arising from their readings of Homer.

Such literary discussions were commonplace among the educated in antiquity and survive in several works from that period.

While Aristotle's Homeric 3/5(1). Get this from a library. Aristotle's lost Homeric problems: textual studies. [Robert Mayhew] -- This series of studies focuses on various aspects of Aristotle's Homeric Problems, an oft-neglected work for which the evidence consists mostly.

This volume takes as its focus an oft-neglected work of ancient philosophy: Aristotle's lost Homeric Problems. The evidence for this lost work consists mostly of 'fragments' surviving in the Homeric scholia - comments in the margins of the medieval manuscripts of the Homeric epics, mostly coming from lost commentaries on these epics - though the series of studies presented.

I choose Homeric Questions as the title of this book both because I am convinced that the reality of the Homeric poems, Among the historical facts used by Aristotle is diction, léxis. but it cannot be equated with some clever novelty in literary criticism. As for the second of the two disciplines that I propose to apply, anthropology.

Halliwell's volume offers a series of detailed and challenging interpretations of some of the defining authors and texts in the history of ancient Greek poetics: the Homeric epics, Aristophanes' Frogs, Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Poetics.

The Homeric Questions of the Neoplatonic philosopher Porphyry (3rd cent. CE) is an important work in the history of Homeric criticism.

In contrast to the philosopher's allegorical readings of Homer in De Antro and De Styge, in the Homeric Questions Porphyry solves problemata by applying the dictum that "the poet explains himself". Based on a new collation of the 5/5(1).

Background. Aristotle's work on aesthetics consists of the Poetics, Politics (Bk VIII) and Rhetoric. The Poetics is specifically concerned with some point, Aristotle's original work was divided in two, each "book" written on a separate roll of papyrus.

Only the first part – that which focuses on tragedy and epic (as a quasi-dramatic art, given its definition in Ch 23) – survives. The "Homeric Question" has vexed Classicists for generations. Was the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey a single individual who created the poems at a particular moment in history.

Or does the name "Homer" hide the shaping influence of the epic tradition during a long period of oral composition and transmission. As the shortest book I've got on my literature student bookshelf, this Dover Thrift Edition Poetics is the cheapest, and most flimsy, but completely worthwhile book.

There's no introduction to the book, just a note about when it was written (circa BC) and about Aristotle himself, taking up less than a s: Porphyry of Tyre (/ ˈ p ɔːr f ɪr i /; Greek: Πορφύριος, Porphýrios; Arabic: فرفوريوس ‎, Furfūriyūs; c.

This book is a very welcome addition to the growing library of Porphyrian scholarship and ancient Homeric exegesis. Porphyry’s Homeric Questions is an important work in the history of Homeric criticism.

In contrast to allegorical readings of Homer such as we know them, for instance, from Heraclitus the Stoic but also from Porphyry’s own De antro nympharum and De Styge, in the Homeric. In the Poetics, Aristotle is primarily concerned with analysis of two types of literary works, drama and considers that both genres function as types of imitation, or mimesis, by means of.

This book examines four Greek texts of the Imperial period that address the topic - Strabo's Geography, Dio of Prusa's Trojan Oration, Lucian's novella True Stories, and Philostratus' fictional dialogue Heroicus - and shows how their imaginative explorations of Homer and his relationship to history raise important questions about the nature of.

Gail Fine's On Ideas is a study of Book I of Aristotle's short essay Peri Idēon, in which Aristotle presents a systematic account of a series of five arguments for the existence of Platonic forms along with a series of objections to each of these arguments. Fine's aim in this book is to explore these arguments and the objections that Aristotle makes with a view to determining the extent.

For the purpose of the present article, Homeric scholarship is divided into three main phases: antiquity; the 18th and 19th centuries; and the 20th century.

Aristotle supposedly wrote a second book on comedy, which is now lost. The main focus of the Poetics is on Greek tragedy. Though there were thousands of tragedies and scores of playwrights, we only have thirty-three extant tragedies, written by the three great tragedians: Aeschylus (– B.C.E.), Sophocles (– B.C.E.), and Euripides.The Homeric Questions of the Neoplatonic philosopher Porphyry (3rd cent.
