G. ZUNTZ, Persephone. Three Essays on Religion and Thought in Magna Graecia. London, Clarendon... LIBRI AD MNEMOSYNEN MISSI G. ZUNTZ, Persephone. Three Essays on Religion and Thought in Magna Graecia. London, Clarendon Press: Oxford University Press, 1971. XIII, 426 p. 30 Pl. Pr. £ 9.00. The first section is a study of the cult of a pre-Greek mother-goddess in Malta and Sicily and of the worship of Persephone in Magna Graecia. Special attention is paid to the votive terracottas found in Sicily and in Lokri. The second part of the book contains a reconstruction of the Ka0apyoi of Empedocles with detailed comments on the fragments. The last section is a new edition of the texts inscribed on the famous gold leaves found at Thurii and some other places. The author argues that the contents are Pythagorean rather than Orphic. Cf.

Die Arbeit versucht, nach einem einleitenden Forschungsübcrblick und einer Kldriing des Begriffsmaterials, die Bedeutung des Mythos fiir die Komodie am Beispiel von Aristophanes' V6geln exemplarisch darzustellen. Die mythologische Analyse offenbart eine planvolle, detailliert ausgearbeitete Struktur der Komodie, die als Neuauflage der Gigantomachie in Gestalt einer Ornithomachie auf der Grundlage eines ringförmig sich schliessenden Sukzessionsmythos konzipiert ist. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt der Technik der Einbeziehung des Mythos in die grundsatzlich nicht-mythische Komodien- handlung, der Erfindung neuer 'Mythen' durch Aristophanes und der standig prasenten politischen Dimension der Kom6dic. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mnemosyne Brill
