[Panel at the Modern Language Association Convention] Literary Wordplay with Names - 04-05-06-07/01/


go to CALL FOR PAPERS

Case studies in world literature have repeatedly demonstrated the effectiveness of wordplays in producing puns or highlighting aspects of a narrative. However, comparatively little scholarly attention has been given to examining the names themselves as a rhetorical tool for literary wordplay. The use or omission of names has received scholar attention for the works of specific authors, e.g. Aristophanes (e.g. Kanavou 2011) and Virgil (e.g. Paschalis 1997), whereas theὀνομαστὶ κωμῳδεῖν is crucial for our understanding of both Greek comedy and Roman satire.
