Wolfgang Polleichtner:
Emotional Questions
Vergil, the Emotions, and the Transformation of Epic Poetry
An Analysis of Select Scenes


This book brings together traditional approaches to the reception of the Homeric epic poems in Vergil's Aeneid, new advances in the field of Hellenistic poetry, as well as latest results from studies of emotions in antiquity. Using selected Vergilian passages that can be compared with a sufficient amount of relevant material from ancient poets and philosophers, this book attempts to reconstruct in greater detail what probably was Vergil's own understanding of what it meant to write epic poetry in his time.
