School of Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics Calendar

My current book project explores the cross-linguistic and intercultural relations of Latin poetry, both in antiquity and in (early) modernity: my working title is "Poetry aross languages: literature, literalism and the Latin tradition".  This paper will offer some case studies in the 'parallel lives' of Greek and Latin literature in Rome, through exploration of cultural dialogue in the "Noctes Atticae" of Aulus Gellius, and through Roman readings (against the grain) of contemporary Greek epigram.
