6 May: Rather err with Homer? Intended Inconsistencies in the Afterlife Descriptions of Virgil, Silius Italicus and Statius.

Guest lecture by Herrn Univ.-Prof. Dr. Andreas Heil, University of Vienna, on Monday, 6.5.2019, 17.30, Residenzplatz 1, Abguss-Sammlung SR. E.33, Department of Classical Studies.

Vergil, Silius Italicus und Statius wiederholen scheinbar in ihren Jenseitsbeschreibungen eine bereits von Aristarch als „Fehler“ kritisierte Eigentümlichkeit der homerischen "Nekyia". Es soll gezeigt werden, dass diese imitatio jeweils mit einer raffinierten Strategie der Verbesserung des Vorbildes verbunden wird.
