By Evanthia Tsitsibakou-Vasalos

The possibility of historic Greek poetic etymologizing and its reception in antiquity are analyzed with new interpretive versions. the writer reports poetic etymology in a holistic and integrative demeanour, as a device of thematic and narrative unification. opt for passages from Homer and archaic lyric poetry give you the matrix for etymological styles; their validity is tested in an intertextual examine of the names of Pelops and his relatives. This family members indicates a constant naming approach: the signifiers and signifieds of its male contributors occur a lexical and semantic affinity; fathers and sons are associated with inherited linguistic and behavioral bonds. Pelops is given a focal place as a result of his preeminence at Olympia and his polyvalent and polysemous identify, within which the ambiguities and polarities of his mythic and cultic id are embedded.
