This book discusses the problems involved in attempts to make sense of ancient Greek society, in particular its texts and images, rituals and myths. The collection of seven previously published papers is prefaced by an introduction which explains the methodological approach common to each. This approach draws on a variety of disciplines such as social anthropology and social history, the psychology of perception, semiology, cognitive studies, and literary theory.
