Aristotle and After

Two papers on classical literary criticism I uploaded to the SSRN—written in the late eighties, and somewhat revised subsequently, so dates are approximate. They have now been accepted in a number of electronic journals.

1. Aristotle's Poetics

This paper provides an overview and commentary of Aristotle's theory of poetry, of drama, and of narrative structure, as presented the Poetics. The main emphasis falls on plot structure, but we expound other important subjects dealt with in the work, such as the cognitive origins of literature, the nature of poetry, an incipient theory of media and the analysis of genres, the nature and elements of tragedy, and other subjects such as epic narrative and the structure of critical debates.

2 - Classical Criticism after Aristotle

This paper provides an overview of the main contributions to literary theory, criticism, and secular hermeneutics after the age of Plato and Aristotle. The main authors dealt with are Horace, Pseudo-Longinus, and Plotinus, mainly as regards their poetics and their aesthetic theories. Some schools dealt with more briefly are the Stoics, the Epiciureans, and the Hellenistic scholars, There follows a section on classical hermeneutics, and another on classical rhetoric.
