This volume is about the morphosyntactic encoding of feelings and emotions in Latin. It offers a corpus-based investigation of the Latin data, benefiting from insights of the functional and typological approach to language. Chiara Fedriani describes a patterned variation in Latin Experiential constructions, also revisiting the so-called impersonal constructions, and shows how and why such a variation is at the root of diachronic change. The data discussed in this book also show that Latin constitutes an interesting stage within a broader diachronic development, since it retains some ancient Indo-European features that gradually disappeared and went lost in the Romance languages.

Le présent ouvrage commence par « une brève histoire de l'utopie littéraire » qui évoque avec précision les étapes de la transformation du genre jusqu'à la dystopie moderne, tout en insistant sur la forme littéraire qui détermine le rapport du projet utopique. L'utopie se montre un genre complexe qui, « sous l'influence de son habitat, de son milieu, de son époque, change de forme et de sens comme un caméléon ». Après cette introduction le volume conduira le lecteur de la Phèdre de Sénèque aux « images du corps » et aux « perspectives des nouvelles technologies », aujourd'hui.
Chaque étude mettra l'accent sur les oppositions, les contradictions qui fondent depuis l'Antiquité l'utopie littéraire ainsi que sur l'aspect « d'entre-deux » générique que notre titre a voulu souligner.

Roman Rule in Greek and Latin Writing explores the ways in which Greek and Latin writers from the late 1st to the 3rd century CE experienced and portrayed Roman cultural institutions and power. The central theme is the relationship between cultures as reflected in Greek and Latin authors' responses to Roman power; in practice the collection revisits the orthodoxy of two separate intellectual groups, differentiated as much by cultural and political agenda as by language. The book features specialists in Greek and Roman literary and intellectual culture; it gathers papers on a variety of authors, across several literary genres, and through this spectrum, makes possible an informed and detailed comparison of Greek and Latin literary views of Roman power (in various manifestations, including military, religion, law and politics).

The ‘classical tradition' is no invention of modernity. Already in ancient Greece and Rome, the privileging of the ancient played a role in social and cultural discourses of every period. A collaboration between scholars in diverse areas of classical studies, this volume addresses literary and material evidence for ancient notions of valuing (or disvaluing) the deep past from approximately the fifth century BCE until the second century CE. It examines how specific communities used notions of antiquity to define themselves or others, which models from the past proved most desirable, what literary or exegetic modes they employed, and how temporal systems for ascribing value intersected with the organization of space, the production of narrative, or the application of aesthetic criteria.
