Isocrates's Use of Narrative in the "Evagoras:" Epideictic Rhetoric and Moral Action.
Poulakos, Takis
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v73 n3 p317-28 Aug 1987
Examines the "Evagoras" from the perspective of contemporary narrative theory, inquiring into internal adjustments that the encomium underwent as epideitic rhetoric sought to play a role in state affairs. Claims uniqueness for the narrative structure of Isocrates's encomium: a combination of fictional narrative (quest for virtue) with historical narrative (biographical sketch of the Cyprian king).
