Abstract

This chapter introduces the volume’s central concern, the triangulation of historiography, authority, and tradition. It historicizes the emergence of John Marincola’s seminal Authority and Tradition in Ancient Historiography by looking to its roots in reader response theory and the alliance of rhetoric and historiography. It further suggests that while the ‘death of the author’ has challenged the position of the author as a site of privileged narrative authority, historiographers can productively attend to the function of the author by turning to advances in feminist narratology.
