Classics Renewed. Reception and Innovation in the Latin Poetry of Late Antiquity
Heidelberg: Winter 2016, 432 S. (= Bibliothek der klassischen Altertumswissenschaften, Neue Folge, Bd. 152), EUR 48.00

Originally delivered at a bi-coastal conference on Late Latin poetry held in 2011 at Rice University and at Brown University, these essays explore some of the defining traits of the Late Latin poetic tradition, offering a sense of how Late Latin poetry was both conservative and innovative: its authors were grounded in the past, yet willing to take established models in new directions and to produce fresh forms in a contemporary literary milieu.

More than this, these essays present fresh interpretive perspectives that accept the differences between Late Latin poets and their classical predecessors and develop new critical approaches that respond to those differences. In the process, they arrive at a novel understanding of a large group of Late Latin poets and their texts and suggest some of the ways in which readers can profitably engage the new forms, content, and concerns that mark the Latin poetry of Late Antiquity.
