THE POETRY OF PATHOS Studies in Virgilian Epic

by Conte, Gian Biagio & S. J. Harrison (edited by)

Condition: Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket

Oxford University Press. Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. 2007. Hardcover. 0199287015 . Very light shelfwear to book else fine. Minor shelfwear to DJ with slight crease to front DJ flap. ; This volume presents a collection of pieces from a celebrated world-class scholar and interpreter of Latin poetry, focusing on the interpretation of Virgil's Aeneid. It forms the sequel to two widely influential earlier books on Virgil by the same author and translates and adds to a collection of papers published in Italian in 2002. Its central concern is the way in which Virgil reworks earlier poetry (especially that of Homer) at the most detailed level to produce very broad literary and emotional effects. Gian Biagio Conte explores a central issue in Virgilian studies, that of how the Aeneid manages to create a new and effective mode of epic in a period when the genre appears to be debased or exhausted. ; 240 pages .
