Example text

Phd. 61b for the idea of poetry as quintessentially muthoi rather than logoi: on fluctuating Platonic formulations of the relationship between muthos and logos, cf. Halliwell 2007, 452 – 5. 28 The discussion in Book 3 leaves the nature of such institutions within Callipolis somewhat vague. 395b-6e (note the use of N¶tyq, 396e10, for ‘public reciter’); cf. Halliwell 2002, 52 n. 37. Burnyeat 1999, 271 – 3, with some strain, thinks Socrates’ concern is more with the writing than the performing of plays.

He gives him only a set of partial intuitions and incomplete arguments which converge on the legitimacy of probing at various levels (psychological, ethical, and ideological) the workings of voice, point of view, and other expressive aspects of form in any narrative discourse which has the power to shape and influence cultural patterns of experience.
