Poetics before Plato: Interpretation and Authority in Early Greek Theories of Poetry

Combining literary and philosophical research, this research defends an completely cutting edge interpreting of the early heritage of poetics. it's the first to argue that there's a distinctively Socratic view of poetry and the 1st to attach the Socratic view of poetry with previous literary tradition.

Literary thought is generally acknowledged firstly Plato's recognized critique of poetry within the Republic. Grace Ledbetter demanding situations this entrenched assumption by means of arguing that Plato's previous dialogues Ion, Protagoras, and Apology introduce a distinctively Socratic concept of poetry that responds polemically to conventional poets as rival theorists. Ledbetter tracks the resources of this Socratic reaction through introducing separate readings of the poetics implicit within the poetry of Homer, Hesiod, and Pindar. reading those poets' theories from a brand new perspective that uncovers their literary, rhetorical, and political goals, she demonstrates their decisive effect on Socratic brooding about poetry.

The Socratic poetics Ledbetter elucidates focuses no longer on censorship, yet at the interpretation of poetry as a resource of ethical knowledge. This philosophical method of reading poetry stands at odds with the poets' personal theories--and with the Sophists' therapy of poetry. in contrast to the Republic's specialise in exposing and banishing poetry's irrational and necessarily corrupting impact, Socrates' concept contains poetry as material for philosophical inquiry inside of an tested life.

Reaching again into what has too lengthy been thought of literary theory's prehistory, Ledbetter advances arguments that would redefine how classicists, philosophers, and literary theorists take into consideration Plato's poetics.

Example text

What delightful note with rapid unexpected flutesounds leaping from the throat of the astute grown bird, comes back to one from the remote 20 Some Definitions unenergetic sun­ lit air before the brood was here? How harsh the bird's voice has become. A piebald cat observing them, is slowly creeping toward the trim trio on the tree-stem —the three fledglings the mother must protect. The penulti­ mate line of the fourth stanza ("the brood was here? How harsh") contains six syllables rather than seven; the next also has six, instead of four; and the first line of the next stanza is eight rather than nine syllables long.

One could scan these lines differently only by indicating the caesura, which is very weak in both and belongs only mar­ ginally to meter anyway (though it is important rhythmi­ cally). Yet Gray has linked the adjacent accents "tolls" and Some Definitions 23 "knell" with consonance for a primarily onomatopoeic effect, while Eliotjoins the separated, balanced accents "think" and "sing" with assonance to suggest a conceptual opposition. ) While Gray coordinates his accents with the important words, five nodes of significance, Eliot diffuses significance among his "ten low words" without much differentiating stress, words carefully chosen for their plain­ ness and their refusal to assume individual emphasis.

These anxieties sprang, as we have seen, from false prem­ ises. " Old confusions rose up to haunt them, and one espe­ cially led them into elaborate error. Mary Hall Leonard exemplified it in saying that Coleridge, Blake and Chatterton, "instead of the regular iambics of the Popian era,. . adopted an irregular iamb-anapestic form of rhythm which laid strong emphasis on the accented syllables, the number of weak sylla­ bles that were swept along with these being considerably var­ ied, and this became known as 'free' or 'accentual' verse" (68, 15).
