Description: Our knowledge of Greek history rests largely on literary textsnot merely historians (especially Herodotus, Thucydides and Xenophon), but also tragedies, comedies, speeches, biographies and philosophical works. These texts are among the most skilled and highly wrought productions of a brilliant rhetorical culture. How is the historian to use them? This book takes a series of extended test-cases, and discusses how we should and should not try to exploit the texts. In some instances, we can investigate what really happened, and the ways in which the texts manipulate, remould, or colour it according to their own rhetorical strategies. In others, the most illuminating aspect may be those strategies themselves, and what they tell us about the culture how it figured questions of sex and gender, politics, citizenship and the city, the law and the courts, how wars happen. Literary Texts and the Greek Historianconcentrates on Athens in the second half of the fifth century, when many of the principal genres came together, but it includes some examples from earlier (Aeschylus Oresteia) and later periods (including Aristotles Politics). Literary Texts and the Greek Historianexamines possible responses to these texts and suggests new ways in which literary criticism can illuminate the society from which these texts sprang.
