    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 126.00

    The Epistula ex Ponto III 1, composed by Ovid to his wife in the 2nd period of his relegatio , is the summary of the leitmotives of his exile poetry and lacks a recent accurate analysis.

  • Sexualmoral und politische Stabilitätby Maike Steenblock

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 168.00

    Moral und Politik stehen in der römischen Literatur in einem engen Vorstellungszusammenhang; sittlicher Niedergang wird als Element wahrgenommen, das die politische Ordnung destabilisiert. Intensiv zeigt sich dieses Phänomen in der Literatur des 1. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. in der Thematik von Sexualmoral und Geschlechterrollennormen. Der... more...

  • Giovenale, "Satira" Vby Biagio Santorelli

  • Vergil's Empireby Eve Adler

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2004; US$ 43.00

    In Vergil's Empire, Eve Adler offers an exciting new interpretation of the political thought of Vergil's Aeneid.

  • Dall'Elicona a Romaby Elena Merli

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 126.00

    È luogo comune che, esaurendosi la stagione della poesia augustea, i motivi di sorso ispiratore e labor limae perdano pregnanza semantica: un giudizio legato alla polemica di Persio contro la poesia contemporanea e al Kallimachos in Rom di Walter Wimmel. Entrambi i topoi subiscono in realtà una profonda trasformazione, entrando nei... more...
