Myth and history in ancient Greece : the symbolic creation of a colony by Claude Calame( Book )
24 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in French and English and held by 642 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

Poetic and performative memory in ancient Greece by Claude Calame( Book )
26 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 318 libraries worldwide
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
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 306 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
