Simus Inter Exempla: Exempla And Innovation In Valerius Maximus, Seneca And Juvenal, Grace Kroner 2014 Washington University in St. Louis

Simus Inter Exempla: Exempla And Innovation In Valerius Maximus, Seneca And Juvenal, Grace Kroner

Undergraduate Theses—Unrestricted

Exempla, vivid stories recounting laudable or shameful actions performed by named individuals, were a common rhetorical device in ancient Roman literature. Generally, they were meant to encourage emulation of good deeds and avoidance of bad. In this work, I investigate how Valerius Maximus, the philosopher Seneca, and the satirist Juvenal employ and deviate from the exemplary tradition, specifically focusing on negative exempla. While Valerius’ encyclopedia of exempla categorized by representative virtue or vice remains within the usual rhetorical sphere (though remarkable for its size - 967 stories), Seneca and Juvenal deliberately endeavor to innovate within the framework of exemplary discourse.

Romance And Reason: Contextualizing The Arthurian Romances Of Chrétien De Troyes, Alexandra Borkowski 2014 University of Massachusetts Boston

Romance And Reason: Contextualizing The Arthurian Romances Of Chrétien De Troyes, Alexandra Borkowski

Graduate History Conference, UMass Boston

The twelfth century saw the birth of the romance in literature, as well as the intellectual and social developments of humanism. The romance often involved the adventures of the knight, focusing on the behavior of the knight using the ideals of courtly love and chivalry. Chrétien de Troyes (c.1135-c.1183) contributed to the discussion of chivalry and courtliness by writing narrative poetry involving the Arthurian legends. He focused on the consequences of his knightly characters’ choices in order to show examples of how a proper knight should behave. This emphasis on the choices of each knight conveys a humanistic ...

Fabrication And Execution: The Lycambids And Their Iambic Aptitude, William Bruckel FCRH '11 2014 Fordham University

Fabrication And Execution: The Lycambids And Their Iambic Aptitude, William Bruckel Fcrh '11

Fordham Undergraduate Research Journal

The Lycambids were a family believed to have personally known the archaic poet Archilochos of Paros. Tradition tells of their collected suicide being motivated by criticisms launched at them in his Iambic verse, and this is sometimes mistaken for historical fact. However, analysis of the conventions of the Iambic genre reveals that it is not sincere invective that Iambus is composed but rather humorous mockery. Inconsistencies in the characterization of the Lycambids in these verses, and the aptitude of those verses for sympotic ritual, are considered in light of this understanding to demonstrate that this tragic family is most likely ...
