The Arts of Love - by Duncan F. Kennedy December 1992

The Arts of Love - by Duncan F. Kennedy December 1992. The five studies which make up this book are each built around a theme (representation, essentialism, metaphor, discourse and identification) which I have found useful in organizing my response to the texts of elegy and the types of reading they have recently evoked. In particular, in a book written for a series entitled ‘Roman Literature and its Contexts’, I have tried to keep in mind the continuing need to examine the question of the historical sitedness of both the texts of elegy and the readings in which their meaning is realized here and now.

This book examines the love elegies of the Roman poets Tibullus, Propertius and Ovid from the point of view of the way the meanings attributed to the poems arise out of the interests and preoccupations of the cultural situation in which they are read. It combines detailed discussions of individual poems with discussion and criticism of a variety of sophisticated modern theoretical approaches. It thus aims to advance the argument not only in the field of elegy, but also in issues such as gender, ideology and the theory of reading.
