The poetics of eros in Ancient Greece by Claude Calame ( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and Ekajuk and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Poetics of Eros in Ancient Greece offers the first comprehensive inquiry into the deity of sexual love, a power that permeated daily Greek life. Claude Calame uses an anthropological and linguistic approach to re-create indigenous categories of erotic love. He maintains that Eros, the joyful companion of Aphrodite, was a divine figure around which poets constructed a physiology of desire that functioned in specific ways within a network of social relations

Myth and history in ancient Greece : the symbolic creation of a colony by Claude Calame ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 328 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."--BOOK JACKET
Masks of authority : fiction and pragmatics in ancient Greek poetics by Claude Calame ( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 298 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."--BOOK JACKET

La réflexion sur les conceptions grecques du temps s'est souvent déployée dans une perspective philosophique : temps circulaire, clôture du monde du mythe, partage entre le profane et le sacré. Mais qu'en pensaient les Grecs eux-mêmes ? Ceux-ci considéraient le déroulement du temps dans un espace précis et concret, dans lequel passé, présent et futur naviguaient entre mémoire poétique et pratique sociale. Ces conceptions invitent donc à privilégier une approche de type anthropologique, tant il est vrai que les formes poétiques assumées par cette mémoire collective ritualisée reposent chez les Grecs sur de remarquables facultés de création symbolique, entre narration et pratiques cultuelles. Après une réflexion sur nos manières contemporaines de mettre en discours les concepts de temps et d'espace, Claude Calame étudie ici tour à tour le récit poétique d'Hésiode sur l'histoire des hommes pour établir la justice dans la cité, la célébration chantée du héros athénien Thésée par Bacchylide dans un usage cultuel et idéologique, l'utilisation par la cité de Cyrène de l'acte héroïque de sa fondation légendaire pour réaffirmer une identité civique, les textes poétiques gravés sur des lamelles d'or pour assurer le passage rituel et initiatique des défunts dans un au-delà de bienheureux : Dionysos pour le passage, Perséphone pour l'éternité
