The classical plot and the invention of Western narrative by N. J Lowe( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Homer to Hollywood, the Western storytelling tradition has canonised a distinctive set of narrative values characterised by tight economy and closure. This book traces the formation of that classical paradigm in the development of ancient storytelling from Homer to Heliodorus. To tell this story, the book sets out to rehabilitate the idea of 'plot', notoriously disconnected from any recognized system of terminology in recent literary theory. The first part of the book draws on current developments in narratalogy and cognitive science to propose a new way of formally describing the way stories are structured and understood
Erôs in ancient Greece by Ed Sanders( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edited volume brings together eighteen articles which examine the role of erôs as an emotion in ancient Greek culture. Arising out of a conference held at University College London in 2009, the volume ranges from Archaic epic and lyric poetry, through tragedy and comedy, to philosophical and technical treatises and more, and includes contributions from a variety of international scholars well published in the field of ancient Greek emotions. Taking into account all important thinking about the nature of erôs from the eighth century BCE to the third century CE, and covering a very broad range of sources and theoretical approaches, both in the chronological and the generic sense, it considers the phenomenology, psychology, and physiology of erôs; its associated language, metaphors, and imagery; the overlap of erôs with other emotions (jealousy, madness, philia, pothos); its role in political society; and the relationship between the human emotion and Eros the god
