Google full text of this book:

This study reveals that the three metrical units into which most choral odes were divided refer to the disposition in space of the dancers as they recited, with climactic moments of the poetry actualized through the attitudes of the dancers and with certain themes reserved for particular sections of the poetic form.

Originally published in 1983.
