Feminist approaches to the study of women in Greek literature have helped illustrate the importance of their religious and ritual roles in public life--Latin literature, however, has not been subject to similar scrutiny. In Brides, Mourners, Bacchae, Vassiliki Panoussi takes up the challenge, exploring women\'s place in weddings, funerals, Bacchic rites, and women-only rituals. Panoussi probes the multifaceted ways women were able to exercise influence, even power, in ancient Rome from the days of the late Republic to Flavian times. Systematically investigating both poetry and prose, Panoussi covers a wide variety of genres, from lyric poetry (Catullus), epic (Ovid, Lucan, Valerius, Statius), elegy (Propertius, Ovid), and tragedy (Seneca) to historiography (Livy) and the novel (Petronius). The first large-scale analysis of this body of evidence from a feminist perspective, the book makes a compelling case that female ritual was an important lens through which Roman authors explored the problems of women\'s agency, subjectivity, civic identity, and self-expression. By focusing on the fruitful intersection of gender and religion, the book elucidates not only the importance of female religious experience in Rome but also the complexity of ideological processes affecting Roman ideas about gender, sexuality, family, and society. Brides, Mourners, Bacchae will be of value to scholars of classics and ancient religions, as well as anyone interested in the study of gender in antiquity or the connection between religion and ideology.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Brides -- The Roman wedding -- Sexuality and ritual: Catullus\' wedding poems -- Isis at a wedding: gender, ethnicity, and Roman identity in Ovid\'s Metamorphoses 9 -- Wartime weddings: Lucan\'s Civil war and Seneca\'s Trojan women -- Quartilla\'s priapic weddings in Petronius\' Satyrica: female power and male impotence -- Mourners -- Roman burial rites -- Mourning Orpheus: poetry and lament in Ovid\'s Metamorphoses 10 and 11 -- A new hope: burying the war dead in Statius\' Thebaid 12 -- Bacchae -- Bacchic rites in Greece and Rome -- Roman Bacchae: Dionysiac mysteries, masculinity, and the state in Livy\'s Bacchanalian narrative -- Philomela\'s Bacchic justice: ritual resistance and abusive authority in Metamorphoses 6 -- Hypsipyle\'s Bacchic pietas: ritual, exemplarity, and gender in Valerius and Statius -- Women-only rituals -- Women-only rituals in Rome -- Spinning Hercules: gender, religion, and geography in Propertius 4.9 -- Hercules and the founding mothers: Mater Matuta and the matralia in Ovid\'s Fasti 6 -- Dancing in Scyros: masculinity and young women\'s rituals in Statius\' Achilleid -- Epilogue: Tacita\'s rites and the story of Lara in Ovid\'s Fasti 2.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/5416707243<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Criticism, interpretation, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1050456417<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Brides, mourners, Bacchae : women\'s rituals in Roman literature<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1099675558<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/muse.jhu.edu\/book\/66188\/<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1916469<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5762568<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781421428925<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1099675558<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
