About the Authors
  • Provides a comprehensive framework for the development of pictorial narrative in ancient art, a topic that has been of great scholarly interest in recent years. Through the application of literary theory about narrative, particularly semiotics and structural analysis; the examination of ancient descriptions of real and poetic works of art; and a contextual examination of a wide range of works, Mark Stansbury-O'Donnell identifies the multiple levels at which narration operates, from the most basic signs to the object of narration for the ancient viewer. A synthesis of theory and application, this study also defines and standardises a vocabulary for pictorial narrative.

    • A systematic exploration and definition of the different levels at which narration works
    • Definition of a vocabulary and terminology for pictorial narration
    • A blending of theory and application
