Politics and Poetics in Classical Literature


The module will allow students to investigate the relationship between power and its modes of representation in the Greco-Roman world: how is power represented? What counts as a powerful representation? Is power always political? Was power ever erotic? Personal?

Sources may be studied either through translation or the original texts.

This module is available in 2016/17

Module Convenors: Dr. Victoria Rimell, Dr. David Fearn
