Plutarch's Rhythmic Prose

G. O. Hutchinson

  • Explores a new critical approach to Imperial Greek literature based on prose-rhythm and focuses on Plutarch's Lives, of which almost 100,000 phrases have been scanned rhythmically
  • Presents close analysis of rhythmically dense passages and gives further passages for comparison in appendices
  • Supplemented by online recordings of readings of some of the passages
  • Includes incisive discussion of ancient theoretical writing on the nature of prose and draws on a vast quantitative base of material gathered for this book
  • Contains translations of Latin and Greek passages throughout for accessibility to readers at all levels of familiarity with both ancient languages
