Origins and Original Moments in Late Latin Literature, I - 27/04/2018, New York (NY, USA)




Late antique texts regularly try to establish a direct link with the literature of the origins by obscuring and erasing the poetic tradition in between. Such yearning for finding a connection between the contemporary and the original moment has received little attention within current scholarship, but, in the view of the workshops' organizers, it is one of the most striking and distinctive characteristics of the textual language of late antique literature, both poetry and prose.
