Allusion and Intertext: Dynamics of Appropriation in Roman Poetry

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Jan 29, 1998 - History - 172 pages
This is a book about how the poets of Classical Rome found artistic inspiration in the words and themes of their poetic predecessors. It combines traditional Classical approaches to poetic allusion and imitation with modern literary-theoretical ways of thinking about how texts are used and reused, valued and revalued, in particular reading communities. Like other volumes in the series it is among the most broadly conceived short books on Roman literature to be published in recent years.
