Über den Titel

ancient texts and their reception based on theoretical approaches
to metaphor, this is a pioneering study which also bears
testimony to the increasing interest in the potential and
cognitive functions of metaphor in literary studies. The
individual studies offer a representative synopsis of current
theories on spatial metaphors and encompass applications to
literary texts from a number of genres and languages ranging from
wisdom texts and philosophical treatises to tragedy and from
Ancient Egyptian to Shakespearean English, thus spanning almost
3000 years of human thought and language. Based on this framework
of theory and practice, this volume collects a series of papers
originally delivered at a conference entitled 'Raum-Metaphern in
antiken Texten und deren Rezeption', organized by research group
'C-2 Space and Metaphor in Cognition, Language and Texts' of the
Excellence Cluster 264 Topoi The Formation and Transformation of
Space and Knowledge in Ancient Civilizations in Berlin in June

conducted within the Excellence Cluster "Topoi. The Formation and
Transformation of Space and Knowledge in Ancient Civilizations",
