  • ‘Some Myths Need to be Ripped Apart’ (Iizuka): The Violence of
           Reception and Reception of Violence in Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories:
           An Adaptation of Ovid’s Metamorphoses

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Naomi Iizuka’s Polaroid Stories (1997) combines a stage adaptation of selected tales from Ovid’s Metamorphoses with the stories of homeless young people. Iizuka’s use of these two sources in her play provides a new insight into Ovid’s treatment of the theme of sexual violence in the Metamorphoses as well as exposing the dangers faced by young people on city streets today. In particular, looking at the two texts exposes the link between sexual violence and linguistic violence in the silencing of victims and the refusal of victims to be silenced. Alongside exploring Iizuka’s reception of the sexual violence portrayed in the Metamorphoses, this article uses a feminist reception theory to analyse Iizuka’s own literary act of violence in her reception of Ovid. Does Iizuka simply present Ovid’s tales and their concern with sexual violence in a more modern setting, or does she violently dismember Ovid’s text to produce a play that criticizes his portrayal of victims of sexual violence in the Metamorphoses' In some ways the techniques Iizuka uses to give the characters in her play a strong voice against the violence they face are similar to those that can be identified in Ovid. However, Iizuka can be seen to use those techniques against the author she emulates in order to give a voice to characters he had silenced.

  • ‘Quomodo cantabimus canticum Domini in terra aliena'’ Jesuit
           Re-invention of Scriptural Commentary in a Newly Recovered Text from
           Seventeenth-Century Quito

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A large quantity of manuscripts survives from the vast network of Jesuit libraries established across South America, including many examples of a distinctive kind of Latin Jesuit scriptural meditation. Although the social and economic influence of the Jesuits in South America has been well documented, no study has focussed on the literary and theological interest of these scriptural meditations, or the significant extent to which they innovate scriptural reading in response to the spiritual challenges posed by the new missionary contexts. The submitted article offers a close reading of a fascinating example of this innovative exegetical style by examining excerpts from the Canticum Habacuc Illustratum by Lucas Vicente Imperial (Quito, 1642). While bringing to light the Augustinian models that inspire this particular kind of exegetical reception, the text also shows the nuances of Jesuit biblical exegesis and its specific connection with contemporary and practical needs.

  • ‘Pontifici dexter Caesaribusque meis’: Ambrogio Fracco’s Sacrorum
           Fastorum libri, Ovid’s Fasti and the Appropriation of March

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Written by the Roman humanist Novidio Fracco during the first half of the 16th century and published subsequently in 1547, the Sacri Fasti is an elegiac poem modelled on Ovid’s own Fasti and structured upon the Catholic liturgical calendar. As a work of the Cinquecento, one of the more novel attributes of the poem is in its combination of Ovidian mythologizing with the contemporary political and religious dynamics of Rome. In this way, Fracco draws on scenes from Ovid’s Fasti which celebrate Augustus and the imperial domus and refigures them for the age of Paul III. In this essay, I analyse the proem of Fracco’s third book, a grand battle between Christ and Mars, as emblematic of this synthesis between the mythological and the political. I begin with the poet’s invocation to the Virgin Mary, which, I contend, locates the poem within the Ovidian tradition and which forms an intertext with the opening of Fasti book four, Ovid’s appeal to the goddess Venus. I then discuss the main episode, the conflict between Christ and Mars, in which Fracco reorients March and the city of Rome as Christian and which establishes another intertext with the foundation myth for Rome at the opening of Fasti book three. Finally, I argue that Fracco, like Ovid, imbues his panel with political significance, using it as a means to sanction the partnership, anticipated and idealized during the Cinquecento, between Pope Paul III and Emperor Charles V.

  • Les Cent-Jours vus par Tacite dans un centon de 1815

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Using a technique that had been popular among polemicists since 1800, Alexandre de Beaurepaire de Louvagny, a nobleman from an emigrant family who sided with Louis XVIII from 1814 onwards, employed phrases borrowed from Tacitus to describe the ‘Hundred Days’, the period between Napoleon's return to Paris on 20 March 1815, after his exile on Elba, and the second restoration of King Louis XVIII to the throne of France on 8 July 1815. Napoleon is a second Nero, while Louis XVIII is likened to Titus. As for the duc d'Angoulême and his wife, they are personified, in the first edition of the pamphlet, as the courageous couple of Sabinus and Eponine; in the second edition, they are assimilated to Germanicus and Agrippina the Elder. In order to maintain the internal coherence of his narrative and to adapt the events of the first century AD to 1815, Beaurepaire used various techniques which led him to intervene either in the Latin text (cuts, new sequences) or in the French translation (additions, omissions, displacements, alterations of meaning, modifications of statements to fit the situation).

  • ‘I Enter the Future with the Memory of the Past’: José Rizal, the
           Philippines and Classical Antiquity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article surveys the presence of classical antiquity in the writing of José Rizal (1861–1896), the national hero of the Philippines. It first discusses Rizal’s Jesuit education and considers an example of his early fiction, The Council of the Gods (El consejo de los dioses, 1880), before outlining the employment of Latin and classical references in his two major novels, Noli me tángere and El filibusterismo. I argue that allusion to classical antiquity plays a range of roles in Rizal’s work: it allows him to adopt a refined persona, deflate the prestige of the Dominican and Franciscan orders, satirize the pretensions of the educated classes and advance the cause of reason and enlightenment in the Philippines. While Latin is at times portrayed as a cudgel wielded by priests and cultural conservatives, it is also revealed to be a tool essential for radical critique of inherited religious dogma. In El filibusterismo, the stories of Antaeus and the Trojan War are put to incisive anticolonial use. As such, Rizal’s writing represents an important moment in the globalized classical tradition at the end of the nineteenth century.

  • ‘Shut Up! You Can’t Even Read Latin!’ Ancient Greek and Roman
           Material in Natsume Sōseki’s I am a Cat

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines the sources and literary function of references to the ancient Greeks and Romans in the Japanese author Natsume Sōseki’s first novel, I am a Cat, written and published from 1905 to 1907. It places Sōseki and his work in the context of Meiji Japan and its renewed engagement with the West. The paper shows how Sōseki was uniquely placed to reflect on this engagement, particularly its intellectual and literary aspects. Despite his personal familiarity with Greek and Roman materials as demonstrated in his scholarly works and notes, the references in his novel are mediated, drawn primarily from other (mainly English) texts rather than ancient sources. This reflects the most common manner of encountering this material for Sōseki’s contemporary readership and therefore sheds some light on the diffusion of Greek and Roman material among the ‘educated elite’. The paper further demonstrates that Sōseki’s use of this material has literary and thematic point: it contributes to his satire of the emerging class of intellectuals in the Meiji period by critiquing the social weaponization of such knowledge, especially in instances where it is not backed by true understanding. The mediated nature of the Greek and Roman material in the novel also raises questions about the efficacy of language as a means of communication as it contributes to the destabilization of meaning. This is most noticeable in Sōseki’s discussion of Greek and Latin language.

  • I Speak Because I Can: Rewriting Ovid’s Rapes in 21st-Century
           Folk-Pop

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article discusses the representation of sexual violence in Ovid’s Metamorphoses and the ways in which Ovid’s narratives have been reworked within the contemporary tradition of feminist revisionist mythology. I discuss five different myths from the Metamorphoses (Eurydice, Persephone, Cassandra, Philomela, and Ganymede) side by side with their modern variants in 21st century folk-pop songs by Anaïs Mitchell, Emmy the Great, and Laura Marling. By a comparative reading of the ancient and the contemporary versions of these myths, I scrutinize how narratological elements such as gaze, voice, emotions, and agency are utilized to construct textual subjectivity for the rape victims. Based on this, I argue that, because of its prominent position in the Western imagination, classical myth can become a useful framework for discussing issues that are culturally important and topical in the world of today – such as consent and bodily autonomy.

  • Edith Wharton’s The Reef: New York High Society & the House
           of Atreus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Edith Wharton’s reputation as the grande dame of American letters rests largely on her imaginative prose fiction about Gilded Age New Yorkers, whose vices it subtly, yet scathingly, criticizes. In her most autobiographical novel, The Reef, she satirizes members of her society, including her own family and familiars, through characters who not only resemble them but also, for added effect, assume the traits of figures from the myth of the house of Atreus, widely considered to be the evilest clan in literature. In constantly alluding to the Greek, Roman, and post-classical tragedies that comprise the ancient story, Wharton demonstrates how woefully decadent old New York is. Each of her book's main character will be compared with their corresponding historical personage and mythological figure to analyse the transgression they have either committed or suffered. Then, the various relationships between every set of three will be further studied. While some observations will reveal critiques of such wrongs as infidelity, as well as direct attacks on objectionable persons, others will go beyond mere association and suggest that certain aspects of high society are even worse than those found in the wicked household of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra.
