A Poetics of Transformation: Prudentius and Classical Mythology
Cornell University Press, 1989 - 192 من الصفحات
Martha Malamud here examines conflicting cultural, religious, and literary codes in the work of Prudentius (348-post 405), perhaps the most influential poet of late antiquity. Breaking new ground, Malamud illuminates Prudentius' use of paradigms from classical mythology and suggests that his poetry constitutes both an analysis and a critique of the Christianity of his day.
