Plato, Phaedo of Plato
Plato's Phaedo is a work in which five complex language forms are used in an intertwining manner in order to form complex ideas. These five language forms are responsible for creating everything that comes out of the Phaedo and are responsible for the formation of any ideas that the reader might make. These forms, narrative frame, periods of debate and interlocution, long speeches, mythopoeisis, and allusions to the cultural corpus join together in order to form the Phaedo. This paper focuses on these concepts but makes more explicit use of the narrative frame to show how all five interact in productive and interesting ways throughout the Phaedo.
