1 Milazzo, Antonino M. DIMENSIONE RETORICA E REALTÀ POLITICA Dione Di Prusa Nelle Orazioni III, V, VII, VIII
Georg Olms Verlag 2007 3487134799 / 9783487134796 Softcover Fine 
Text in italian; Spudasmata Band 115; 280 pages; Dion of Prusa is one of the most important sources for the history of literature and rhetoric in the early Roman empire. He was not only Trajan’s political advisor, but also provided us with an important theoretical study on the political rhetoric of the period: the different forms of government, the dialectic of monarchy and tyranny, social harmony, Greek loyalty to the Romans, and the position of the intellectual in the 1st and 2nd centuries AD. This book examines the connections between rhetoric, sophistics, politics and ethics in one of Dion of Prusa’s most famous speeches. The historical background, the literary context and significant aspects of the reception of Dion’s ideas and suggestions are illuminated, and major modern scholarly opinions are discussed and often disproved. The author always keeps the analysis and various interpretations of the text in the central focus of a critical reading. This gives the work its interest for philologists and historians in the field of the history of ancient rhetoric and the second sophistic as well as of Graeco-Roman society in the first two centuries of our era.
