Editorial Reviews


"Apollo, Augustus, and the Poets offers learned and engaging readings of many of the central works of Augustan poetry. It overlooks no relevant Augustan or Republican evidence and provides an ample account of relevant Greek literary tradition, even including the less-familiar responses to Actium by contemporary Greek poets. ...allows considerable openness to a multiplicity of interpretations, including ones fully resistant to dominant Augustan ideology. ..this book comes highly recommended to all readers of Augustan poetry. --BMCR

Book Description

Augustus claimed Apollo as a patron, and poets of the age responded to the idea in different ways. This book is a comprehensive treatment of the reflections by Augustan poets on Apollo as an imperial icon, both in relation to one another and against the background of contemporary evidence.
