Latin Language and Latin Culture: From Ancient to Modern Times

Sampul Depan
Cambridge University Press, 15 Feb 2001 - 148 halaman
The Latin language is popularly imagined in a number of specific ways: as a masculine language, an imperial language, a classical language, a dead language. This book considers the sources of these metaphors and analyses their effect on how Latin literature is read. It argues that these metaphors have become idées fixes not only in the popular imagination but in the formation of Latin studies as a professional discipline. By reading with and more commonly against these metaphors, the book offers a different view of Latin as a language and as a vehicle for cultural practice. The argument ranges over a variety of texts in Latin and texts about Latin produced by many different sorts of writers from antiquity to the twentieth century.

I found the arguments in this book v. interesting but was put off by the unnecessarily obscure style in which they were expressed - ie what's gained by using fancy words like coterminous? Baca ulasan lengkap
