    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Lucan’s Bellum Civile (Pharsalia) is traditionally read as a political critique of the Principate. However, several features of this text run counter to this interpretation. This study reexamines Lucan’s work using the model of the unreliable narrator to illuminate its portrayal of contradictory structures in Nero’s Principate. The interdisciplinary approach offers a new perspective on Lucan’s epic poem and its historical importance.

    Reviews

    "Il volume costituisce un contributo utile, nuovo e stimolante agli studi su Lucano e sulla posizione del Bellum ciuile nella letteratura e nel clima del suo tempo. La categoria narratologica moderna della ‘narrazione inaffidabile’ merita attenzione
    e si presta a essere adottata per un’ampia analisi del sistema narrativo, anche prosastico, greco e latino."
    Antonio Pistellato in: Lexis 36 (2018), 521-523
