Ebook description:

In this e book, Roger D. Woodard argues that when the Greeks first started to make use of the alphabet, they seen themselves as contributors in a efficiency phenomenon conceptually modeled on the performances of the oral poets. Since a time older than Greek antiquity, the oral poets of Indo-European custom had been known as ‘weavers of phrases’—their extemporaneous efficiency of poetry was ‘phrase weaving’. With the arrival of the new expertise of the alphabet and the onset of Greek literacy, the very act of producing written symbols was interpreted as a comparable efficiency exercise, albeit one through which virtually everybody might take part, not solely the choose few. It was this new conceptualization of and participation in efficiency exercise by the lots that ultimately, or maybe rapidly, resulted in the demise of oral composition in efficiency in Greece. In conjunction with this investigation, Woodard analyzes a set of copper plaques inscribed with repeated alphabetic collection and a line of what he interprets to be textual content, which attests to this archaic Greek conceptualization of the efficiency of image crafting.
