Summary
Repitition in literature is often a matter of fierce debate: What separates creative exchange from plagiarism? In Ovid's Homer, Barbara Weiden Boyd examines the Latin poet's nuanced engagement with the Homeric poems throughout his career. Boyd offers a detailed analysis of Ovid's reading and reinterpretation of a range of Homeric episodes and characters to both demonstrate and delineate the pervasive presence of HOmer in Ovid's work. The resulting intertextuality, articulated as a poetics of paternity or a poetics of desire, is particularly marked in scenes that have a history of scholiastic interest or critical intervention; Ovid repeatedly asserts his mastery as Homeric reader and critic through his creative respose to alternative readings, and in the process renews Homeric narrative for a sophisticated Roman readership. In this book, Boyd offers fresh insights into the dynamics of a literary tradition, illuminating a previously underappreciated aspect of Ovidian intertextuality
