CAVALLERO, Pablo A. Characterization and narrative technique in John the Beggar by Leontius of Naples. Byzantion nea hellás [online]. 2010, n.29, pp.169-187. ISSN 0718-8471.

They are analyzed, in the Leontius' tale, the different techniques through which the author characterizes his central personage; and then, the interventions which are done by the author himselfi the meta-literary traits or the commentaries of contents, and some insistent resources as the tale in the tale and the apparitions and revelatory dreams. It is interpreted that, with the declared intention of touching a vast audience, the technique allows to construct a rhetoric 'etopoiesis' and to interest the audience by using popular resources in accordance with the language; so, then, the tale is good achieved, because the componente of the content and formal strategies are employed with efficacy in attention to the audience and the intentionality of the author.

Palabras clave : Hagiography; Leontius; John the Almsgiver; Narrative technique; metaliterature.
