Rethinking Metonymy

Literary Theory and Poetic Practice from Pindar to Jakobson

Sebastian Matzner

Classics in Theory Series

  • Advances a ground-breaking new study of metonymy, filling a gap in literary analytical scholarship
  • Contains rigorous analysis of extensive examples from a wide range of literary sources, including classical Greek tragedy and lyric poetry and German Romantic poetry
  • Relates classical perspectives and concepts from ancient rhetoric and poetics to modern linguistic and literary theory, especially structuralism
  • Tackles problems of stylistic analysis, structuralist interpretation, and translation criticism that confront scholars not only of literary theory but across the humanities
