Motherhood and the Other

Fashioning Female Power in Flavian Epic

Antony Augoustakis

Oxford Studies in Classical Literature and Gender Theory

  • Full analysis of the role of women in epic poetry of the first century AD aids understanding of a relatively neglected area in Latin literature
  • Modern psychoanalytic theory is used to shed light on the themes of motherhood and otherness
  • Extensive use of Greek and Latin sources helps the comparative study of the poems under discussion and places them in a wider context
