Yet its irreverent tone and bold defiance of generic boundaries set the Metamorphoses apart from its contemporaries. Ovid before Exile provides a compelling new reading of the epic, examining the text in light of circumstances surrounding the final years of Augustus? reign, a time when a culture of poets and patrons was in sharp decline, discouraging and even endangering artistic freedom of expression.     Patricia J.

All three narratives are set in the full dimensions of Ovid?s own literary and political context. Johnson?s scholarship is up-to-date, and her subtle interpretation is supported by translation of all passages discussed. It is at the center of current Latin literary studies, and should provoke lively and positive reactions.??Elaine Fantham, Princeton University?A very readable close analysis of the key episodes about artists and their relationship to their audiences and those in power. Johnson shows that the sense of foreboding about artistic freedom of expression that pervades Ovid?s exile-poetry had set in even when he was writing the earlier Metamorphoses.??Martin Helzle, Case Western Reserve University"Johnson offer[s] useful interpretive observations, especially on Ovid's use of his Greek and Latin influences."?Choice?[A]n engagingly-written and well-constructed book which should be of interest to students and scholars of Ovid alike.??Rebecca Armstrong, Journal of Roman StudiesPatricia J. Johnson is associate professor of classical studies at Boston University. Brand NEW unread book. Hard cover bound book.

Johnson, Patricia J.:

Ovid Before Exile: Art and Punishment in the Metamorphoses - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9780299224004

ID: 834537

Ovid's epic masterpiece, the "Metamorphoses," with its fiercely irreverent tone and its resolute defiance of the boundaries of genre, stands boldly apart both from the other poetry of its age and from the epic tradition that preceded it. A generation earlier, a high culture of poets and patrons had flourished, giving rise to the great works of Virgil, Horace, Propertius, and Tibullus. But, in this compelling new reading of the "Metamorphoses" in its social and political context, Patricia Johnson demonstrates that Ovid was writing in an artistic atmosphere succumbing to a stranglehold of implicit censorship that culminated in his exile from Rome in 8 AD. Johnson shows that, in the poem, danger permeates acts of artistic creation. In Ovid's portrayals of mythic figures--from Arachne and Minerva to Orpheus in the Underworld--artists who please their audience triumph; the defiant and subversive are destroyed. She reveals that in the poem, as in late Augustan Rome, the overriding criterion for artistic success was not aesthetic beauty but satisfying the expectations and desires of powerful audiences. She convincingly demonstrates just how unprecedented the "Metamorphoses" was in the epic tradition.
