Beschreibung

This new approach to the temporal dynamic of historiography will appeal to classicists, ancient historians and scholars interested in the theory of history. Its application to major Greek and Roman historians yields a new and often surprising take on individual authors and the history of ancient historiography in general.

Jonas Grethlein holds the Chair in Greek Literature at Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg. His recent publications include The Greeks and their Past: Poetry, Oratory and History in the Fifth Century BCE (2010) and, co-edited with Christopher B. Krebs, Time and Narrative in Ancient Historiography: The 'Plupast' from Herodotus to Appian (2012).
