Summary note
"Though stylistics undoubtedly plays a crucial role in the scholarship on Latin poetry - from commentaries to textual criticism, from intertextuality to literary criticism - in recent years, for various reasons, it has not received the attention it deserves. This book, published a generation after Adams and Mayer's seminal 1999 volume, Aspects of the Language of Latin Poetry, ideally aims to complement and update it on a smaller scale, offering the reader a collection of stimulating papers from international scholars on the style of some of the most significant voices of Latin poetry, from early drama to the Flavian period"-- Provided by publisher.
