A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The influence of the Roman poet Horace on Ben Jonson has often been acknowledged, but never fully explored. Discussing Jonson s Horatianism in detail, this study also places Jonson s densely intertextual relationship with Horace s Latin text within the broader context of his complex negotiations with a range of other rivals to the Horatian model including Pindar, Seneca, Juvenal and Martial. The new reading of Jonson s classicism that emerges is one founded not upon static imitation, but rather a lively dialogue between competing models - an allusive mode that extends into the seventeenth-century reception of Jonson himself as a latter-day Horace . In the course of this analysis, the book provides fresh readings of many of Jonson s best-known poems - including Inviting a Friend to Dinner and To Penshurst - as well as a new perspective on many lesser-known pieces, and a range of unpublished manuscript material.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The influence of the Roman poet Horace on Ben Jonson has often been acknowledged, but never fully explored. Discussing Jonson's Horatianism in detail, this study also places Jonson's densely intertextual relationship with Horace's Latin text within the broader context of his complex negotiations with a range of other 'rivals' to the Horatian model including Pindar, Seneca, Juvenal and Martial. The new reading of Jonson's classicism that emerges is one founded not upon static imitation, but rather a lively dialogue between competing models ? an allusive mode that extends into the seventeenth-century reception of Jonson himself as a latter-day 'Horace'. In the course of this analysis, the book provides fresh readings of many of Jonson's best known poems - including 'Inviting a Friend to Dinner' and 'To Penshurst' - as well as a new perspective on many lesser known pieces, and a range of unpublished manuscript material.

Critique:

'Moul's book is an important contribution to Jonson studies, revealing how Jonson constructed his own authorial identity by creatively exploiting and combining a wealth of classical contexts.' Translation and Literature
