    schema:description ""There is throughout a working assumption that intertextual connections can be established, and further that functions and purposes, even intended ones, may be inferred from those connections. The hermeneutic stance, if there is a single one, is that the presence of the model's intertext, when triggered by reader recognition in the (Catullan or) Virgilian text, has a powerful ability to create meaning."--BOOK JACKET. "This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Greek and Roman poetry but should also be of value to students of medieval, Renaissance, and early modern vernacular literatures, most of whose poets saw themselves closely connected to Virgil, and many of whom entered into similar relationships with Virgilian and other Latin texts."--Jacket."@en ;
