Summary
"In Contexts of War, Andreola Rossi takes a fresh look at the battle narrative of the Aeneid and devotes specific attention to the ways in which the narrator constantly manipulates the epic imagery of war by assimilating the narrative conventions of other literary genres, namely historiography and, indirectly, tragedy. Moving beyond the usual pairing of Homer and Virgil, Iliad and Aeneid, Rossi refutes the notion that Homer is the only code model for the latter, and demonstrates that the Virgilian battle narrative presents a complex generic structure."--BOOK JACKET
