Niels Koopman investigates the nature of five ancient Greek ekphraseis. Ekphrasis is defined as the verbal representation of visual representation. This means that an ekphrastic text embodies two layers of representation: a primary verbal layer and a secondary visual layer. His main aim is to explore to what degree these ekphraseis can be regarded as narrative and to what degree as descriptive.
