Webster Dictionary

  1. Stasimonnoun

    in the Greek tragedy, a song of the chorus, continued without the interruption of dialogue or anapaestics

    Etymology: [NL., from Gr. sta`simon, neut. of sta`simos stationary, steadfast.]


  1. Stasimon

    Stasimon in Greek tragedy is a stationary song, composed of strophes and antistrophes and performed by the chorus in the orchestra. Aristotle states in the Poetics that each choral song of a tragedy is divided into two parts, first the parodos and then the stasimon. He defines the latter as "a choral song without anapaests or trochaics". This comment about the absence of anapest and trochee has been interpreted to mean that the music was not based on the usual “walking” meters, since the chorus sings the stasimon while remaining in the orchestra. After making its entrance singing the parodos, it does not usually leave the orchestra until the end of the play. The Suda, an 11th-century Byzantine encyclopedia, attributes the establishment of the choral singing of a stasimon to the celebrated kitharode Arion of Hermione.
