About the Authors
  • This is a book about how the poets of Classical Rome found artistic inspiration in the words and themes of their poetic predecessors. It combines traditional Classical approaches to poetic allusion and imitation with modern literary-theoretical ways of thinking about how texts are used and reused, valued and revalued, in particular reading communities. Like other volumes in the series it is among the most broadly conceived short books on Roman literature to be published in recent years.

    • Stephen Hinds is one of the two series editors who jointly invented the series
    • An innovative and subtle approach to the study of poetic allusion
    • Author combines theoretical sophistication with traditional skill in analysing the texts
