Portada 



This book adopts a broad and multifaceted approach to that most preeminent of classical literature genres: Epic. Set in the ancient world, from archaic Greece to imperial Rome, the scope of interest here extends, for comparative purposes, to Vedic and Sanskrit poetry as well as Mediaeval epic. This collection of papers by classicists from the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) embraces key themes in recent scholarship, such as the character of the hero, defined in terms of the conflict of power central to the epos, the metapoetic function of the bard as a literary reflection of epic style, and the manipulation of epic myth to fulfil new functions such as retelling contemporary history and conveying mystic symbology. Also dealt with are topics rooted in archaic poetry, such as the reutilisation of the ogre character embodied in the Cyclops and the journey into the Underworld. In all these studies, the intertextual nature of ancient writing is consistently addressed through discussions of the revisiting of Homeric poetry by authors such as the Greek tragics, Empedocles, Plato, Virgil, Ovid, Seneca, Lucan or Valerius Flaccus. The analysis of heroic narrative offered in this volume includes both literary phenomena and the language of epic itself; the reader is thus afforded the widest possible view of critical perspectives in current classical literature and linguistics. Such a comprehensive treatment of the master genre of ancient times grants the reader powerful insights into the way in which ancient literature was composed. This collection of studies, while making a substantial contribution to scholarship in the field, is intended to appeal to a varied academic readership, including researchers on classical literature and linguistics as well as students of literary theory.

30.05 - SEMINAR - FILOLOXÍA 

17:00 Francesc Casadesús (Universidad de las Islas Baleares)

La escuela de Atenas de Rafael. Una lección visual de filosofía griega.

Análisis con un cierto detalle de los personajes que aparecen en la Escuela de Atenas de Rafael, justificando su presencia y explicando su disposición a partir de determinadas claves interpretativas. En definitiva, explicación de las razones filosóficas y teológicas que motivaron la confección de esta magnífica obra.

 

18:00 Antonio De Castro Caeiro (Universidade Nova de Lisboa)

Tempo e disposição nas Píticas de Píndaro. Facticidade e escatologia na Olímpica II de Píndaro.

De entre as coisas que foram feitas, justa e injustamente, nada poderá ser desfeito. Nem o tempo, o pai de todas as coisas, poderá pôr termo às suas consequências. Oxalá, por um acaso feliz, se dê o ESQUECIMENTO. Quando as alegrias nobres acontecem, sobrevem a calamidade, mas o rancor será dominado, quando é um destino divino a fazer subir ao céu com uma bênção. A palavra acompanhou as filhas de Cadmo bem sentadas no seu trono: elas que sofreram tanto. O lamento cai fundo em face do bem que acontece.

Call for Papers

«POETIC LANGUAGE AND RELIGION IN GREECE AND ROME»

SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, MAY, 31 MAY / 1 JUNE, 2012


We welcome paper proposals for the Conference on «Poetic Language and Religion in Greece and Rome», organized by the Research Group on Classical Philology at the University of Santiago de Compostela. A maximum of 20 proposals will be included in the Conference programme.

Studies on the ‘Indogermanische Dichtersprache’ ('Indo-European poetic language') have proved fruitful thanks to the successful combined application of philological and linguistic methods when researching the spiritual background of ancient peoples, especially in Greece and Rome.

This Conference intends to benefit from this methodological tradition to incorporate the new approaches to the analysis and exegesis of poetic texts, as privileged bearers of the religious thought of Greece and Rome.

Our aim is to join researchers in the fields of classical studies and linguistics to discuss key issues such as:

- The Indo-European poetic language and its reflection in the Greek and Roman context.

- Phonic, rhythmic and lexical elements in Greek and Latin poetry: its religious character.

- Greek and Latin poetic genres: religious origins and developments.

- The interrelation of literary expression, religion and thought.

- Overlapping of related areas: elements of poetry in the Greco-Roman magic.

Keynote speakers [provisional titles]:

-José Luis García Ramón (University of Cologne): «Religious Onomastics in Greece and Italy and Indoeuropean Poetic Language»

-Manuel Garcia Teijeiro (University of Valladolid): «The Language of the Gods and of the Ghosts»

-Alex Hardie (University of Edinborough): «Eastern Muses»

-Emilio Suárez de la Torre (Universidad Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona): «Poetic Language or Religious Language? On the Interplay of Poetry and Ritual in Ancient Greece»


Communications should not exceed 25-30 min. We welcome abstracts addressing, among other topics:

- Survival of formulas of the Indo-European poetic language

- Poetic language and religious language

- The language of magic and the language of poetry

- Poetic and prophetic language

- Characterization of Greek and Roman cultic poetry

- Greek and Roman poetry on religious antiques

- The possibility of secular poetry in Greece and Rome

Titles and abstracts (about 200 words) should be sent to J. V. García Trabazo [josevirgilio.garcia@usc.es] or A. Ruiz Pérez [angel.ruiz@usc.es] before 27 November 2011.

Answers on the acceptance of paper proposals before 01.20.2012.

The fee will be €40 (€20 for undergraduates)
