Allusion and intertext : dynamics of appropriation in Roman poetry by Stephen Hinds( Book )
15 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 439 libraries worldwide
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 book represents a new 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

Allusion and cultural memory in late antiquity : Ausonius, Prudentius, and Claudian by Joshua J Hartman( file )

This dissertation explores the influence of poetry on the construction and perpetuation of culturally dominant narratives. I demonstrate that late antique poets were particularly sensitive to the effect that their work had on memory, and I focus on textual allusion as a mechanism that allowed poets to guide readers through negotiations of memory. My first chapter reveals an ancient understanding of cultural memory through a reading of a Republican, rather than a late antique work. My analysis of Cicero’s De Legibus reveals that Cicero, easily the most influential Roman intellectual, intuited the concept of lieux de mémoire, a modern theory of cultural memory that conceives of both texts and sites as “places” where memory can be rehearsed and reinforced. Furthermore, I show that Cicero understood poetry as a force that constructs, transforms, and defends such lieux and the narratives they represent. After establishing that Roman intellectual traditions engaged cultural memory, I turn to the late antique period, particularly to three case studies. Each of my subsequent chapters treats a widely-read poet of the late fourth century. I examine the negotiations of memory present in the works of the poets Ausonius, Prudentius, and Claudian in order to demonstrate a clear memory motivation in each author’s work. I begin with Ausonius, whose work provides an important foundational example; the poet uses allusion not only to construct lieux de mémoire about Gaul, his home province, but also to navigate personal anxieties about memory, forgetting, and commemoration. In contrast to these regionalist lieux de mémoire, the third chapter focuses on the more universalizing narratives of Prudentius’ Contra Symmachum. The poem’s Christian perspective on Roman imperial history advances ideas contentious for its time, and I examine the role allusion plays in acknowledging and delegitimizing competing traditions while reinforcing the Christian traditions valued by the poet. The final chapter identifies allusive strategies Claudian deployed in order to construct narratives about the general Stilicho and reveals that critics relied on allusion to refute such constructions. I conclude by revealing how Claudian’s allusions guided the recollection and self-reflection of his elite senatorial audience

Written on running water : Ovidian poetics in the Roman waterscape by Bridget Alice Langley( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Written on Running Water: Ovidian Poetics in the Roman Waterscape analyzes the symbolic value of water in Ovid’s poetry and considers how this was affected by the reorganization of the Roman water supply under Augustus. Agrippa and Augustus gained enormous political capital by restructuring and coordinating the city’s hydraulic infrastructure, and they altered the Roman landscape and the cultural significance of water in ways that would profoundly influence the building programmes and self-promotion of later emperors. I show that the abundance and beauty of the city’s new waterscape also affected Ovid’s use of images such as the fountain of inspiration and the locus amoenus, and came to represent the ideal aquatic environment. Taking a broad view of Ovid’s water poetics, I examine his depictions of Roman hydraulic infrastructure, his representations of water systems outside of the city, and the transformative waters of the Metamorphoses which challenge human attempts to control nature. Throughout his oeuvre, Ovid harnesses the power of water to figure his life and his poetic activity. I show that the basis for these images can be found in the newly transformed waterscape of the city of Rome
