Divine talk : religious argumentation in Demosthenes by Gunther Martin( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first full study of religion in the oratorical corpus Contextualized reading of religious argumentation aids our understanding of the strategies of the speeches Includes a speech by speech analysis of Demosthenes' major works Gunther Martin examines the references to religion in the speeches of Demosthenes and other Athenian orators in the 4th century BC. In Part I he demonstrates the role religion plays in the rhetorical strategy of speeches in political trials: his main argument is that speakers had to be consistent in their approach to religion throughout their career. It was not possible to change from being a pragmatic to a r̀eligious' speaker and back, but it was possible, when writing for others, to use religion in a way one would not have used it when delivering a speech oneself. In Part II Martin deals with assembly speeches and speeches in private trials, in which religious references are far scarcer. In the assembly, unless genuinely religious matters are discussed, religion seems to have been practically inadmissible, while in private trials it is procedural elements that supply the majority of religious references. Readership: Scholars and students of classics, especially Greek literature; ancient history; ancient religion; rhetoric
Euripides, Ion : edition and commentary by Gunther Martin( Book )

10 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study undertakes to provide the reader with a new edition of 'Euripides? Ion' and a commentary that elucidates the play as a self-contained text and a sophisticated and dramaturgically effective construct. It helps the reader understand what the Greek text means on the literal level, and how the characters act in word and deed, how their actions have been arranged by the poet in a way so that they form a coherent and stringent plot

Euripides, "Ion" : Edition and Commentary by Gunther Martin( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aufgrund seiner Vielschichtigkeit gehört der Ion zu den am schwersten fassbaren Tragödien des Euripides. Theologie, Politik und Gattungsgesetze sind nur drei der Themen, die in der Forschung zu dieser Tragödie über einen ausgesetzten und wiedergefundenen athenischen Prinzen und Sohn des Apoll kontrovers diskutiert werden. Der vorliegende Kommentar liefert eine Neuedition des Textes zusammen mit detaillierten Erläuterungen, die auf sprachliche Schwierigkeiten ebenso eingehen wie auf literarische und dramaturgische Fragen. Ein besonderes Augenmerk liegt auf Elementen, durch die zeitgenössische soziale, rechtliche und poltische Ideen und Institutionen in die mythische Handlung integriert werden. Die Einleitung behandelt neben den großen interpretatorischen Problemen auch die Bearbeitung des Mythos durch Euripides, die Datierung und die Geschichte des Texts. So erhält die Diskussion des Stückes sowohl in den Einzelheiten als auch im Ganzen eine neue Grundlage
