Summary
This book addresses the performance and dissemination of Greek poems of the seventh to the fifth centuries BC whose premieres were presented by a chorus singing in a ritual context or in secular celebrations of athletic victories. It explores how choruses presented themselves; individuals' and communities'roles in funding performances and securing the circulation of texts; how performances continued inside and outside family and city, whether chorally or in symposia; and how such performances contributed to transmission of the poems' texts until they were collected by Hellenistic scholars
