The Historical Process of Innovation of Text Styles in Ancient Greece

This paper remarks on the historical process of innovation of text styles and stereotype sentences in ancient Greece, based on literature documentation. Text is a complete language event, namely autonomy. It has arche(beginning), medē(middle) and telos(end), and this configuration means text totality. Text style has three moments of configuration, development and stereotype sentence. The illustration in ancient Greece is shown on Homer’s epic poems, Iliad and Odyssey, both of which have prologue, narrative and epilogue. These epic poems have a lot of stereotype phrases and are composed of hexameter verses. The prosody-driven verse, which is the expression of ethnic pathos or passion, is given priority over semantic and syntax.

The development of Greek Prose in Ionia and Attica

This paper remarks on the historical process of innovation of the prose style in ancient Greece, based on literature documentation. Ionic prose is characterized by simplicity, parataxis, and connectives. The Corpus Hippocrates shows us Ionian prose style and the text composed of introduction, discussion, and concluding remarks, which has brought the literary fundamentals to the later scientific writers in the later centuries. Attic prose is characterized by complexity, hypotaxis, and abstract nouns. The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides is the representative Attic prose in the later of the fifth century B.C. and the historian has the skills for writing complex prose featured in participle construction and connecting particles.

Sophist Oratory

This paper remarks on the historical process of innovation of Attic prose in ancient Greece, particularly in sophist oratory of Athena. The oratory in her court has four-part structure: introduction, recital, argument, and conclusion. Each part consists of rhetorical sentences The eloquence is a key aspect of Attic prose and characterized by participle clauses called colon. The clauses make an antithesis of rhetorical words and phrases. The speech of Orator Lysias integrates the features such as conciseness, descriptiveness and simplicity into relatively short sentences. The speech of Rhetorician Isocrates, however, is characterized by his eloquence, complex of matrix and subordinate clauses, and thus long sentences called περίοδος. Greek orators had devised three types of orator corresponding to topos such as legal orator, speeches in demos assembly or ceremony.
