Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In his epic poem on the Civil War, the Roman poet Lucan paid close attention to his literary predecessors. This volume closes a gap in research by looking beyond the frontiers of language and literary form, and concentrates on Lucan 's reception of Greek literature, in particular Attic tragedy and Hellenistic poetry. Selected passages throw light on the importance of mythical literary models such as the Trojan War and the Theban Cycle for Lucan 's epic portrayal of civil war.
