abstract

This paper analyses the Homeric forms that are reused and reinterpreted by Aeschylus in order to create new metaphors and emphasise two main themes from the Persians’ parodos. The first part is dedicated to the imagery and lexicon that describe the Persian army between land and sea. The second section shows how Aeschylus’ lexical experimentation can rework Homeric expressions and lead to the creation of new iuncturae such as the ‘mind dressed in black’, which represents both the Chorus’ anxiety and the foreshadowing of mourning.
