Housman Lecture 2014: Ovid as a literary historian
Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
The UCL Department of Greek and Latin regularly hosts a public lecture named in honour of its most celebrated professor (and poet) A. E. Housman and delivered by a scholar of international distinction. Our guest speaker this year is Professor Denis Feeney, a specialist in Latin literature and Roman religion. He is Professor of Latin at the Princeton University.
At the end of his writing career, Ovid was increasingly prompted to look back over his life as he attempted to create a framework for understanding recent Roman literature and his place within it. The lecture examines how he did this, and who his most important models were.
