Epiploke: Rhythmical Continuity and Poetic Structure in Greek Lyric

Cole, Thomas

This book argues that feet and phrases, to the extent that they exist at all in Greek lyric verse, tend to be present at the level of parole rather than langue—constituting one of a number of possible ways of articulating some larger rhythmical continuum. These larger rhythmical structures are the minimal independent utterances in lyric discourse.
