About this product
- DescriptionHow can we explain the process by which a literary text refers to ather text? For the past decade and a half, intertextuality has been a central concern of scholars and readers of Roman poetry. In Intertextuality and the Reading of Roman Poetry, Lowell Edmunds proceeds from such fundamental concepts as author, text, and reader, which he then applies to passages from Vergil, Horace, Ovid, and Catullus. Edmunds combines close readings of poems with analysis of recent theoretical models to argue that allusion has linguistic or semiotic basis: there is thing in addition to the alluding words that causes the allusion or the reference to be made. Intertextuality is a matter of reading.
- Author BiographyLowell Edmunds is a professor of classics at Rutgers University. His many books include Approaches to Greek Myth; Oedipus: The Ancient Legend and Its Later Analogues; and Poet, Public, and Performance in Ancient Greece all available in paperback from Johns Hopkins.
