Product description

Cambridge University Press 1998. Paperback in very good used condition - some very light marking to cover and creasing to front top right of cover - also some very light wear to bottom corner edges of cover front and back, otherwise book is fine.
This fascinating 1998 book examines how the poets of classical Rome found artistic inspiration in the words and themes of their poetic predecessors. It combines traditional classical approaches with modern literary-theoretical devices. The study of the deliberate allusion by one author to the words of a previous author has long been central to Latin philology. However, literary Romanists have been diffident about situating such work within the more spacious inquiries into intertextuality now current. This 1998 book represents an attempt to find (or recover) some space for the study of allusion - as a project of continuing vitality - within an excitingly enlarged universe of intertexts. It combines traditional classical approaches with modern literary-theoretical ways of thinking, and offers attentive close readings, innovative perspectives on literary history, and theoretical sophistication of argument. Like other volumes in the series it is among the most broadly conceived short books on Roman literature to be published in recent years.
