    At his sudden death in 1987, Håkanson left a number of unpublished scholarly works.

  • Critical Notes on Virgilby Gian Biagio Conte

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 84.00

    In this book, conceived as a sort of Prolegomena to his two Teubner editions, Conte gives account of his choices in editing his Virgilian text. Engaging in a passionate debate with his predecessors and critics, he guides the reader in a fascinating journey in the history of transmission and interpretation of Georgics and Aeneid  and... more...

  • Wordplay and Powerplay in Latin Poetryby Phillip Mitsis; Ioannis Ziogas

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 168.00

    The political allegiances of major Roman poets have been notoriously difficult to pin down, in part because they often shift the onus of political interpretation from themselves to their readers. By the same token, it is often difficult to assess their authorial powerplays in the etymologies, puns, anagrams, telestichs, and acronyms that feature prominently... more...

  • Allusion and Allegoryby Boris Kayachev

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    The Ciris has received a certain amount of scholarly attention during the twentieth century, but on the whole has failed to meet with an adequate appreciation. This book aims to vindicate the Ciris , mainly by exploring its use of pre-Virgilian poetic texts largely ignored in previous scholarship. The core of the book consists of... more...

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    Die im literarhistorischen Kanon eher randständig behandelte Travestie betrifft tatsächlich die Mitte eines epistemischen Spannungsfeldes, nämlich das intrikate Verhältnis von provokativem Regelbruch und dem Bestehen eines verbindlichen Regelsystems bzw. Regeldenkens in der Frühen Neuzeit. Die Studie widmet sich daher vergleichend den ersten europäischen... more...

  • Greek Texts and Armenian Traditionsby Francesca Gazzano; Lara Pagani; Giusto Traina

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    An interdisciplinary approach, crucial as it is in most fields of research, proves itself to be unescapable in the study of interactions between the ancient Armenian and Greek worlds and literatures. The volume arises from such an awareness and collects papers presented in a conference which has been organized in 2013 at the University of Genova,... more...
