Latin Elegy and the Space of Empire

Sara H. Lindheim

Oxford Studies in Classical Literature and Gender Theory

  • Draws together theories of cartography with Lacanian theory to offer new perspectives on the elegiac subject
  • Explores how Catullus and Latin elegy offer us new ways to think about how Romans conceptualized geographic space
  • Brings the "spatial turn" in the humanities to bear on Latin elegy (beginning with Catullus) in a way that offers new readings of the gendered subjects of elegies
