Greek literature is divided, like many literatures, into poetry and prose, but the difference between them in Greek is not that the prose is devoid of firm rhythmic patterning. In the earlier Roman Empire much Greek (and Latin) prose was actually written to follow one organized rhythmic system: this volume is the first to establish how much and to offer a detailed study of prose-rhythm in later Greek literature. Focusing on Plutarch's Lives, it employs detailed commentaries on rhythmically dense passages to demonstrate the importance of rhythm as a dynamic means of expression and its untapped potential as a tool for the literary analysis of Greek prose.
