About this product
- DescriptionRethinking Metonymy is the first monograph to confront and resolve issues surrounding problematic appropriations of metonymy in the humanities. By developing a ground-breaking new definition based on analysis of examples in Greek tragedy and lyric poetry, it sets an agenda for far-reaching reconsiderations in literary studies and beyond.
- Author BiographySebastian Matzner is Lecturer in Comparative Literature at King's College London, where he earned his Ph.D. in Classics and Comparative Literature in 2012. His doctoral thesis, entitled 'The Forgotten Trope: Metonymy in Poetic Action', won the University of Heidelberg's Prize for Classical Philology and Literary Theory and he was subsequently awarded a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to pursue his postdoctoral research project 'Beautiful Tyrants: Postcolonial Reflections on Philhellenism in Rome and Germany' at the University of Oxford. After lectureships in Classics and Latin Language and Literature at Oxford and the University of Exeter respectively, he returned to King's College London in September 2015.
