|Title:||Righting the Reader: Conflagration and Civil War in Lucan's De Bello Civili||Contributor(s):||Roche, Paul Andrew (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1355||Abstract:||Lucan's first simile compares Rome's descent into civil war with the stoic phenomenon of conflagration. This simile is here read against the tradition of classical literature treating conflagration. The implications of this heritage are weighed against the simile's context and the themes and narrative techniques appearing throughout the epic. The simile is programmatic of Lucan's tendency to extend ambiguous hermeneutic possibilities and in its declaration of a conspicuously defective equation between subject and simile.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Scholia - Studies in Classical Antiquity, v.14, p. 52-71||Publisher:||Department of Classics, University of Otago||Place of Publication:||New Zealand||ISSN:||1018-9017||Field of Research (FOR):||200510 Latin and Classical Greek Literature||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://proquest.umi.com.ezproxy.une.edu.au/pqdweb?did=1568763601&sid=1&Fmt=6&clientId=20804&RQT=309&VName=PQD
