I am a Phd student in classical Greek. My field of research is classical philology with primary interest in ancient literature and philosophy.
In my Phd project I look at Plato´s incorporation of poetic citations within his philosophical writing. In particular I will focus on the persuasive strategies employed in the preludes of the Plato'Laws. The result will contribute to a better understanding of both the interplay between Plato and the earlier literary tradition, and Plato's general attitude towards poetry.
