    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...
