Présentation de l'éditeur :

How should we react as readers and as critics when two passages in a literary work contradict one another? Classicists once assumed that all inconsistencies in ancient texts needed to be amended, explained away, or lamented. Building on recent work on both Greek and Roman authors, this book explores the possibility of interpreting inconsistencies in Roman epic. After a chapter surveying Greek background material including Homer, tragedy, Plato and the Alexandrians, five chapters argue that comparative study of the literary use of inconsistencies can shed light on major problems in Catullus' Peleus and Thetis, Lucretius' De Rerum Natura, Vergil's Aeneid, Ovid's Metamorphoses, and Lucan's Bellum Civile. Not all inconsistencies can or should be interpreted thematically, but numerous details in these poems, and some ancient and modern theorists, suggest that we can be better readers if we consider how inconsistencies may be functioning in Greek and Roman texts.

Revue de presse :

"The argument is lucid and profitable. Any student of the Classics could learn a lot by following the author's concise examination of many of the major interpretative problems in Roman epic poetry."
James J. O'Hara, New England Classical Journal

"O'Hara's study is aimed at any reader, expert or not, interested in using literary theory to shed new light on contemporary issues in Roman epic." BMCR

"The book is written in a clear language which abstains from an artificially complicated vocabulary and convoluted sentences. O'Hara convincingly suggests many reasons why Roman poets chose discrepancies."
Journal of the Classical Association of Canada, Sabine Grebe, University of Guelph

Description du livre Etat : New. Cambridge University Press, 2007. 180p. Paperback. Series: Roman Literature and its Contexts. 'O'Hara argues that inconsistencies in Roman epic are often, but not always, thematic devices that demand interpretation. He begins with an expansive survey of the device in 'Greek Versions' (chapter 1) that introduces inconsistency as an established hermeneutic, especially in Hellenistic literature. He proceeds to focus on Roman epic alone in the following five chapters, which are on Catullus 64 (chapter 2), Lucretius' 'De Rerum Natura' (chapter 3), Vergil's 'Aeneid' (chapter 4), Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' (chapter 5), and Lucan's 'De Bello Civili' (chapter 6). In a compelling study, O'Hara argues that many thematic inconsistencies are related to the experience of reading these texts. O'Hara supports his argument by focusing specifically on the proems of the epics he covers. One of the greatest strengths of his argument is to link thematic inconsistencies with the formal construction of epic. His command of the secondary literature is formidable, as the sixteen pages of bibliography and over 300 footnotes attest. O'Hara attends constantly to the place of his argument in the history of scholarship and guides the reader through a variety of interpretive approaches to the inconsistencies that he analyzes without claiming to offer a 'key' to them all.' (JOSIAH EDWARDS DAVIS in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2007.10.22). Condition: New. 1. N° de réf. du vendeur 32547
