By Emmanuela Bakola,Lucia Prauscello,Mario Telò

contemporary scholarship has said that the intertextual discourse of old comedy with prior and modern literary traditions isn't constrained to tragedy. This ebook is a well timed reaction to the extra subtle and theory-grounded manner of viewing comedy's interactions with its cultural and highbrow context. It indicates that during the method of its self-definition, comedy emerges as voracious and multifarious with a large spectrum of literary, sub-literary and paraliterary traditions, the engagement with which emerges as primary to its projected literary identification and, in this case, to the reception of the style itself. Comedy's self-definition via everyday discourse some distance transcends the (narrowly conceived) 'high-low' department of genres. This ebook explores historical comedy's interactions with Homeric and Hesiodic epic, iambos, lyric, tragedy, the fantasy culture, the ritual performances of the Greek polis, and its reception in Platonic writings and Alexandrian scholarship, inside a unified interpretative framework.
