"Reading Rivers in Roman Literature and Culture is the first book in a new series - Roman Studies: Interdisciplinary Approaches. Prudence J. Jones examines rivers as a literary phenomenon, particularly in the poetry of Vergil. She shows that looking at the use of rivers is essential to understanding the trajectory of Vergil's works, especially the structure of the Aeneid." "Jones gives scholars in the classics, and literary critics who focus specifically on Roman antiquity, a new lens through which to view the works of Vergil as well as other significant authors. This book is also for those working in the fields of cultural studies, cultural geography, and ancient philosophy."--BOOK JACKET.
