    Metaphor, Allegory, and the Classical Tradition: Ancient Thought and Modern Revisions.G. R. Boys-Stones (ed.) - 2003 - Oxford University Press.
    How closely do the theoretical notions of 'metaphor' and 'allegory' developed by ancient rhetoricians reflect the practice of classical writers? This question is tackled through eleven new essays by a team of distinguished academics. Ancient theories of metaphor are compared with twentieth century alternatives; theory is tested against practice; and allegory - a distinctive though neglected feature of ancient literature and philosophy - is explored against the background of the rhetoricians' claim that it is one form of metaphor.
