Description - Latin Fiction by Heinz Hofmann

Latin Fiction presents a comprehensive and innovative study of the Roman novel. The Roman novel is an area which has precipitated a great deal of study. However, the focus of past attention has tended to centre on the novels of Petronius and Apuleius, whereas this study re-defines the limits of the Roman novel, setting it in a broader context. Latin Fiction provides a chronological study of the Roman novel from the Classical period to the Middle Ages, exploring the development of the novel and the continuity of Latin culture. Among the texts considered are: Petronius, Satyrica and Cena Trimalchionis Apuleius, Metamorphoses (The Golden Ass) and The Tale of Cupid and Psyche The History of Apollonius of Tyre The Trojan tales of Dares Phrygius and Dictys Cretensis The Latin Alexander Hagiographic fiction Medieval interpretations of Cupid and Pysche, Apollonius of Tyre and the Alexander Romance.
