Muthos. Aristotle’s Concept of Narrative and the Fragments of Old Comedy

My dissertation presents a new analysis of Aristotle’s concept of narrative in the Poetics, and then applies that concept to the structure of events in Aristophanes, the fragments of Old Comedy and beyond. Arguing that the term muthos in the Poetics cannot be seen as equivalent to “plot,” the dissertation suggests that the muthos concept is instead a useful tool for grouping larger sets of narratives based on specific criteria.
