iam tum (nowthenalready): Latin Epic and the Post-Historical

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The question of reception and the political requires us to think about the

    relationship between material, political, or state power on the one

    hand and, on the other, the interpretative devices and techniques that

    make certain meanings or modes of reading more readily available

    than others. How is political power related to the devices we have for

    making the world intelligible? Through what rhetorical and material

    strategies and resources is the reception of texts, the construction of

    meanings, made possible within (by or against) political power?
