Generic Interfaces in Latin Literature: Encounters, Interactions and Transformations (Google eBook)
Theodore D. Papanghelis, Stephen J. Harrison, Stavros Frangoulidis
Walter de Gruyter, Mar 22, 2013 - Literary Criticism - 478 pages
This volume pursues a key topic in the current study of Latin literature - the way in which literary texts of all periods in Latin, while usually written in an identifiable genre, characteristically allude to and interact with other genres. It pushes research forward by providing a broad range of studies concentrating on the polyphonic nature of Latin literary texts, both exemplifying recent theoretical advances and suggesting further lines of argument. It will appeal to classical scholars, students of classical literature and literary scholars in general.
