What is ἀργός? Whiteness? Luminosity? Or, simply a range of bright shades? Having undertaken an on-going research project on the perception of colour-sense in antiquity that explores colour’s metaphorical function(s) and its social role, in this paper I shed light on bright shades in the Iliad, mainly ἀργός, and examine their contexts to investigate how the poet employs ἀργός in developing a richer narrative, including character portrayal. How are various appearances of ἀργός composed and interconnected? How do they metaphorically affect their contexts? What do they symbolise within the narrative? Through detailed analysis, I show that ἀργός, being appropriately selected to contribute to each context as a significant indicator, plays an important role in brightening the context, effectively and picturesquely.
It can be stated that dance notation was proved to be an established tool for dance research and dance education in understanding and analyzing movement. This theorem is especially valid in cases where, the structure of dance is amorphous, the units of movement sequences differ from that of the accompanying music, the tempo of the dance is high. Dance notation is used rather isolated in the field of traditional dance in Hungary, mainly in dance research. In the light of the research introduced above it is highly recommended to introduce dance notation in research, education, aesthetics and criticism in the other genres of dance.
