Recent years have witnessed an increased interest in classical studies in the ways meaning is generated through the medium of intertextuality, namely how different texts of the same or different authors communicate and interact with each other. Attention (although on a lesser scale) has also been paid to the manner in which meaning is produced through interaction between various parts of the same text or body of texts within the overall production of a single author, namely intratextuality. Taking off from the seminal volume on Intratextuality: Greek and Roman Textual Relations, edited by A. Sharrock / H. Morales (Oxford 2000), which largely sets the theoretical framework for such internal associations within classical texts, this collective volume brings together twenty-seven contributions, written by an international team of experts, exploring the evolution of intratextuality from Late Republic to Late Antiquity across a wide range of authors, genres and historical periods. Of particular interest are also the combined instances of intra- and intertextual poetics as well as the way in which intratextuality in Latin literature draws on reading practices and critical methods already theorized and operative in Greek antiquity.

Through the analysis of individual love poems and groups of poems as well as through the representation of thematic and compositional connections of the love theme with other cardinal themes, this work opens up a new perspective on Horace s’ first collection of odes. Love becomes identifiable as the center of poetry, its poetic functionalization leads to a reassessment of the relationship between Horace and Augustus. Manifold evidence of relationships between individual poems allows new insight into the homogeneous structure of the collection as a whole.

Horace and the Gift Economy of Patronage

"In this very substantial contribution to Horatian scholarship, Bowditch focuses on the Roman patronage system, of which Horace was a notable beneficiary. Passing over the early years of the 30s BCE, when Maecenas first befriended Horace and introduced him into his privileged circle of political and literary associates in Rome, Bowditch concentrates on the decisive step in the relationship of the two when Maecenas gave Horace the Sabine Farm in the hill region beyond Tibur (modern Tivoli). Bowditch helps us view the complex significance of this 'gift' through a dazzling array of theoretical material from modern anthropological research into Greek, Roman, and North American Indian prehistory, drawn also from the disputed views on Roman patronage and from postmodern theories about the roles of writer and audiences in literature. . . . Bowditch's versatile interpretations of these Epistles, the most ingenious contribution of this valuable study, will offer a challenge for some time to future readers and scholars."— William S.
