Dream, Fantasy, and Visual Art in Roman Elegy
by Emma Scioli
English | 2015 | ISBN: 0299303845 | 297 Pages | True PDF | 2 MB
The elegists, ancient Rome's most introspective poets, filled their works with vivid, first-person accounts of dreams.
By treating dreams as a mode for viewing, an analogy suggested by diverse ancient authors, Emma Scioli extracts new information from the poetry of Propertius, Tibullus, and Ovid about the Roman concept of seeing? dreams. Through comparison with other visual modes of description, such as ekphrasis and simile, as well as with related types of visual experience, such as fantasy and voyeurism, Scioli demonstrates similarities between artist, dreamer, and poet as creators, identifying the dreamer as a particular type of both viewer and narrator.
