(p.370) EPILOGUE
Making Time for the Past

Katherine Clarke (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter stresses the significance of time not only to professional chronographers and historians, but also to the polis. Articulating and expressing time effectively and plausibly, particularly in local history, mattered. The historian, the orator, or the artist used the same frameworks as the chronographers but to serve the polis; he linked the formal manipulation of time and the life of the city. Tragic and comic dramatists, orators, native and visiting historians, rhapsodes, exegetae, and statesmen all offered versions of the past for the polis to reject or to accept.

Keywords:   time, articulating time, expressing time, orator, historian, artist, rhapsodies, exegetae, statesmen
