Latin Literature's Resonance in Other Languages and Traditions

A book on the cross-linguistic relations of poetic writing in Latin, which will seek to destabilize the usual narratives of Roman literary culture and classical tradition. Latin literature has always been constituted by its relationships with other languages and traditions: for ancient readers by its ever-changing relationship with Greek; for modern readers by no less constitutive relationships with the European vernaculars. I will emphasize cross-linguistic events in which the correspondence between texts in different languages is so close as to approach the condition of translation, without quite being the same thing as translation, and where the very issue of movement between languages is somehow central. This chronologically spacious project involves a significant mid-career redirection of my energy and expertise. A Fellowship can allow me to make a concentrated push on the book after I present its core as three invited Gray Lectures at Cambridge University in May next year.
