Il volume raccoglie sette saggi che attraversano alcuni aspetti della cultura umanistica, fra XV e XVI secolo, seguendo sentieri poco battuti: il petrarchismo latino, la prima ricezione di Lorenzo Valla e le prove più mature del magistero del maestro bolognese Filippo Beroaldo il Vecchio. Ognuno dei contributi affronta un diverso fenomeno di ricezione e trasmissione culturale di autori antichi e moderni: in alcuni casi di moderni (Petrarca) riscritti con le parole degli antichi, in altri di autori antichi riscoperti e riproposti grazie alla mediazione dei moderni, come i sette saggi o i divieti pitagorici. Tutto questo in un periodo di transizione in cui la lingua latina non sente più molto salda la sua egemonia in campo culturale.

Inspired by Theodore Papanghelis' Propertius: A Hellenistic Poet on Love and Death (1987), this collective volume brings together seventeen contributions, written by an international team of experts, exploring the different ways in which Latin authors and some of their modern readers created narratives of life, love and death. Taken together the papers offer stimulating readings of Latin texts over many centuries, examined in a variety of genres and from various perspectives: poetics and authorial self-fashioning; intertextuality; fiction and ‘reality'; gender and queer studies; narratological readings; temporality and aesthetics; genre and meta-genre; structures of the narrative and transgression of boundaries on the ideological and the formalistic level; reception; meta-dramatic and feminist accounts-the female voice. Overall, the articles offer rich insights into the handling and development of these narratives from Classical Greece through Rome up to modern English poetry.

Few authors of the Victorian period were as immersed in classical learning as Oscar Wilde. Although famous now and during his lifetime as a wit, aesthete, and master epigrammist, Wilde distinguished himself early on as a talented classical scholar, studying at Trinity College Dublin and Oxford and winning academic prizes and distinctions at both institutions. His undergraduate notebooks as well as his essays and articles on ancient topics reveal a mind engrossed in problems in classical scholarship and fascinated by the relationship between ancient and modern thought. His first publications were English translations of classical texts and even after he had 'left Parnassus for Piccadilly' antiquity continued to provide him with a critical vocabulary in which he could express himself and his aestheticism, and a compelling set of narratives to fire his artist's imagination. His debt to Greece and Rome is evident throughout his writings, from the sparkling wit of society plays like The Importance of Being Earnest to the extraordinary meditation on suffering that is De Profundis, written during his incarceration in Reading Gaol.
Oscar Wilde and Classical Antiquity brings together scholars from across the disciplines of classics, English literature, theatre and performance studies, and the history of ideas to explore the varied and profound impact that Graeco-Roman antiquity had on Wilde's life and work. This wide-ranging collection covers all the major genres of his literary output; it includes new perspectives on his most celebrated and canonical texts and close analyses of unpublished material, revealing as never before the enduring breadth and depth of his love affair with the classics.

Nel volume si affronta il problema del significato dell'invocazione alla Musa Erato, tradizionalmente associata alla poesia erotica, nel secondo proemio dell'Eneide, collocato al centro del poema, tra la parte odissiaca e quella iliadica. Virgilio richiama scopertamente il proemio del III libro delle Argonautiche di Apollonio Rodio, ma se la Musa 'apolloniana' è la Musa dell'eros, quella virgiliana è la Musa dell'amor, in tutte le sue diverse manifestazioni; nella rappresentazione di quelle più estreme emergono significative convergenze tra la sfera erotica e quella furiale. Sono posti in luce nel corso del lavoro nuovi elementi utili per l'esegesi del proemio, e di altri passi virgiliani, con implicazioni non irrilevanti anche al fine di individuare possibili chiavi interpretative di tutto il poema.

Un regain d'intérêt pour les œuvres de Césaire d'Arles apparaît sur les cinq continents. C'est ainsi que nous présentons dans ce Tome I, vingt-cinq communications venues de huit pays différents, témoins de cette curiosité renouvelée. Des universitaires du bout du monde, un Américain et un Russe, une Écossaise et un Congolais, un religieux et un philologue, un sociologue et un historien sans compter les archéologues de notre Provence, y ont collaboré, unis par leur recherche commune. Vingt-deux nouvelles d'origine géographiques aussi diverses attendent le Tome II, dont nous au printemps ou à l'été 2018.

We have recently seen a strong revival of interest in the works of Caesarius of Arles on each of the five continents. The twenty-five articles included in the present Volume I of our series bear witness to this renewal, coming as they do from scholars in eight countries. United by a common enthusiasm for their subject, our authors include academics from the USA, Russia, Scotland and the Congo along with a priest, a philologist, a sociologist and a historian, and not forgetting the contributions of several archaeologists from our own Provence. Volume II to be published in the fi rst half of 2018 will contain a further twenty-two articles by scholars from an equally wide geographical spectrum.
