Description

Gathering together over sixty new and revised discussions of textual issues, this volume represents notorious problems in well-known texts from the classical era, by authors including Horace, Ennius and Vergil.

A follow-up to Vegiliana: Critical Studies on the Texts of Publius Vergilius Maro (2017), the volume includes major contributions to the discussion of Horace’s Carmen IV 8 and IV 12, along with studies on Catullus Carmen 67 and Hadrian’s Animula vagula, as well as a new contribution on Livy’s text at IV 20 in connection with Cossus’ spolia opima, and on Vergil’s Aeneid 3. 147-152 and 11. 151-153. On Ennius, the author presents several new ideas on Ann. 42 Sk. and 220-22l, and in editing Horace, he suggests new principles for the critical apparatus and tries to find a balance by weighing both sides in several studies, comparing a conservative and a radical approach. 

Critica will be an important resource for students and scholars of Latin language and literature.
