Promotional Information

This book applies some of the procedures of modern critical theory to the interpretation of Latin poetry.


"...Charles Martindale's critical libellus is a fitting companion to the other two books that have so far appeared in the series Roman Literature and its Contexts edited by Denis Feeney and Stephen Hinds. The series' editors cannot be complimented too highly for the bold initiatives they have taken in sponsoring new critical perspectives in a field that, in the past, has been more resistant than responsive to such explorations."
