    DescriptionThe study of the deliberate allusion by one author to the words of a previous author has long been central to Latin philology. However, literary Romanists have been diffident about situating such work within the more spacious inquiries into intertextuality now current. This 1998 book represents an attempt to find (or recover) some space for the study of allusion - as a project of continuing vitality - within an excitingly enlarged universe of intertexts. It combines traditional classical approaches with modern literary-theoretical ways of thinking, and offers attentive close readings, innovative perspectives on literary history, and theoretical sophistication of argument. Like other volumes in the series it is among the most broadly conceived short books on Roman literature to be published in recent years.

    Review quote
    'Allusion and Intertext is a happy conjunction of a fascinating subject and the ideal author to treat it.' The Times Literary Supplement 'Like the other volumes in the series, Hinds' Allusion and Intertext and Feeney's Literature and Religion at Rome are well written and well edited brief introductions to a significant area of scholarly research in Latin literature, designed simultaneously to incorporate and explain recent scholarship in the field and to serve as a protreptic to others.' Phoenix
