FLORES DE TEJADA, Emilia. Paralenguaje de los ojos en Esquilo. Synthesis (La Plata) [online]. 2004, vol.11, pp. 55-76. ISSN 0328-1205.

The look -act of seeing, regard- has, according to contemporary research, three different functions: it informs, it touches and it speaks. This study analyses the linguistic function of the look -how the eyes "speak"-, in the Aeschylus's creation, following recent studies about body language and gestures -Mc Neill, Davis, Pease, Fast-, in which the eyes have a central role. These study shows that the eyes speak, flatter und denounce in Aeschylus. The work presents and analyses in his literary work different types of visual expression: emblems, illustrators, regulators and adapters. Finally the study analyses the messages from eyebrows, eyelids and tears. The Greek language and Aeschylus's genius provides plenty of interesting and valuable examples about the paralanguage of eyes.

Palabras clave : Look; Eye; Body Language; Gesture.
