Authority Figures: Metaphors of Mastery from the Iliad to the Apocalypse
Rowman & Littlefield, 1996 - Počet stran: 202
Reveals how certain strategic metaphors embedded in the early Western literary canon have promoted--and continue to promote--systems of inequality and social control. Collins examines texts ranging from the Homeric epics and the Platonic dialogues to Virgil's Aeneid and the Book of Revelation. Drawing on the linguistic and documentary evidence of usages in early societies, chiefly Greek and Hebrew, Collins has produced a penetrating examination of social and personal structures in those worlds.
