Éditeur : Brill, Netherlands

Reliure : Hardback
Etat du livre : New
Language: Latvian,English . Brand New Book. Although it was labeled an anti-epic for trumping the celebratory scope of the Roman national epos, Lucan s Bellum Civile is a hymn to lost republican liberty composed under Nero s tyrannical empire. Lucan lost his life in a foiled conspiracy to replace the emperor, but his poem survived the wreckage of antiquity and enjoyed uninterrupted readership. The present collection samples the most current approaches to Lucan s poem, its themes, its dialogue with other texts, its reception in medieval and early modern literature, and its relevance to audiences of all times.
