Commentary on Isocrates' Antidosis by Yun Lee Too

Book Description

How does one construct a role for oneself in the fourth-century democratic city? This commentary on Isocrates' Antidosis , which includes a full translation as well as an extensive introduction, demonstrates that a rhetorician may do so by assuming roles that subvert many of the conventions invoked by the genre - a non-speaker in a rhetorical community, a rhetorician in a world where rhetorical performativity has derogatory connotations, a philosopher following the trial of Socrates. Moreover, Yun Lee Too demonstrates how the narrative of 'self' in the Antidosis is to be understood as a sophisticated amalgam of literary, rhetorical, philosophical, and legal discourses.

A study of the ancient library as a complex institution with many different functions: as an instrument of power, of memory; an articulation of a political ideal, an art gallery, a place for sociality. Too incidentally raises conceptual questions about modern libraries, bringing to these the insights that a study of antiquity can offer.
