[EAN: 9780521559218], [SC: 14.5], History|Ancient|Rome, Literary Criticism|Ancient & Classical, Literary Criticism|Drama, Literary Criticism|General, Literary Criticism|Poetry, Cambridge University Press, 1998. 1st ed. 176p. Paperback. Nice copy. Series: Roman Literature and its Contexts. 'F. has written a timely and important work, providing a concise and stimulating guide to the major points of convergence between recent approaches to Latin literature and new directions in the study of Roman religion. It is rich in ideas, and includes striking formulations on almost every page; it is sure to be mined heavily for pithy quotations. The book is polemical in the best sense of word: its main thrust consists in a confrontation with a set of problematic assumptions that have shaped much traditional scholarship on both literature and religion in Rome. In a brief introduction, F. identifies the most sweeping of these assumptions and outlines his response. The body of the book consists of four chapters. In the first, 'Belief', F. tackles the idea that there was in Rome a single thing identifiable as 'religion' against which literature can be interpreted; he argues instead for a variety of religious discourses that interacted with each other and with various literary discourses in a multitude of ways. In the second chapter, 'Myth', he addresses the notion that myth is by definition organic and corporate, and loses social significance when handled in too literary or self-conscious a fashion, a notion that automatically excludes Roman material from the status of 'real myth'. Chapter III, 'Divinity', deals with the various conceptions of the gods in literature and cult, and the last chapter, 'Ritual', concerns the tendency to identify 'real' Roman religion with cult, leaving literature as something at best digressive and at worst irrelevant. The book concludes with a brief discussion of Roman religious knowledge. (.) It deserves, and no doubt will find, a wide readership among all those interested in Roman religion, Latin poetry, and Roman culture more generally.' (J.B. RIVES in The Classical Review (New Series), 2000, pp.106-107). From the library of Professor Carl Deroux. Antiquarian, [PU: Cambridge University Press]

Denis Feeney:
Literature and Religion at Rome : Cultures, Contexts, and Beliefs - used book

ISBN: 0521559219

ID: 7570429

Recent reevaluations of Roman religion by ancient historians have stressed the vitality and creativity of the Romans' religious system throughout its long history of continual adaptation to new challenges. Capitalising on these insights, Denis Feeney argues that Roman literature was not an artificial or parasitic irrelevance in this context, but an important element of the dynamic religious culture, with its own status as another form of religious knowledge. Since Roman culture, both literary and religious, was so thoroughly Hellenised, the book also makes a case for a reconsideration of the traditional antitheses between Greek and Roman literature and religion, arguing against Hellenocentric prejudices and in favour of a more creative model of cultural interaction. ancient,ancient and classical literature,classics,criticism and theory,greek,history,history and criticism,humanities,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections Medieval, Cambridge University Press
