Reading the Letters of Pliny the Younger

An Introduction

€ 35.59


`This is the first general introduction to Pliny`s Letters published in any language, combining close readings with broader context and adopting a fresh and innovative approach to reading the letters as an artistically structured collection. Chapter 1 traces Pliny`s autobiographical narrative throughout the Letters; Chapter 2 undertakes detailed study of Book 6 as an artistic entity; while Chapter 3 sets Pliny`s letters within a Roman epistolographical tradition dominated by Cicero and Seneca. Chapters 4to 7 study thematic letter cycles within the collection, including those on Pliny`s famous country villas and his relationships with Pliny the Elder and Tacitus. The final chapter focuses on the `grand design` that unifies and structures the collection. Four detailed appendices give invaluable historical and scholarly context, including a helpful timeline for Pliny`s life and career, detailed bibliographical help on over thirty popular topics in Pliny`s letters and a summary of the main characters mentioned in the Letters`-
