In classical texts, use of the first person frequently switches between historic author and fictional stylization. In order to avoid renouncing the author as a category of interpretation or having to return to obsolete biographical interpretation, the polymorphic concept of autofiction lends itself to the differentiated analysis of this phenomenon. The studies in this volume investigate and reflect upon how it can be applied to classical texts.
