Bibliography of Vergilian Scholarship: 1991-1992

Table of Contents

The present survey of Vergilian Scholarship is the thirtieth in the VERGILIUS Series. Classical World 68:1 (1974), published in association with The Vergilian Society, Inc., contains my ``Recent Work on Vergil: A Bibliographical Survey. 1964-73.'' The survey was reprinted in The Classical World Bibliography of Vergil, ed. Walter Donlan (New York & London: Garland, 1978). Subsequent reviews have appeared in VERGILIUS 19 (1973) to 37 (1991).

The 1991-1992 compilation is greatly indebted to the assistance and cooperation of several libraries: Firestone Library, Princeton University; the Library of The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, N.J.; Helsinki University Library; and Mills Memorial Library, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario. Offprints of articles, chapters, and titles have been generously provided by readers. Scholars and authors are respectfully invited to send material and advice to the editor, Alexander G. McKay, Department of Classics, McMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, L8S 4M2, Canada.

Don Fowler has noted recently (G&R 39 [1992] 97) that ``the seemingly endless expansion of publications . . . has put a great strain on our bibliographical tools . . . For more recent material (than L'Année Philologique) one has to rely on Gnomon and Bollettino di Studi Latini, but their coverage is very partial'' . . . (credite experto). ``The answer has to lie in a move to electronic dissemination, but while Classics has been a pioneer in the provision of machine readable texts, it lags behind in bibliography. A start is being made on existing material by the US-based Database of Classical Bibliography which aims to get some 204,000 bibliographical records from L'Année Philologique by September 1993 (cf. APA Newsletter, Autumn, 1991). ``But for current bibliography,'' in Fowler's argument with which I entirely concur, ``we really need an online depository to which people could send abstracts and retrieve the hottest and latest.'' Fowler suggests that we just need organization. I suggest that we have an organization with a good experience ready to launch a pilot project with Vergil. When shall we begin, members and faithful readers?

Morano Rando includes thought, art, and influence in her extensive post-Mambelli bibliography. Sienkewicz's annotated bibliography (178-257), is designed to help the more advanced high school student and the general college student to discover sources for course papers and projects. Articles in periodical or scholarly journals are usually cited only when they have been reprinted in volumes more readily available to the (anglophone) reader.

Baldwin's article happily clears the way for a more relaxed reading of the enigmatic bucolic. Farrell confirms 42-39 B.C. as correct dates for the composition of the bucolic poems. Köves-Zulauf treats Eclogue 4 in his larger compass. Parker assesses Eclogue 4.42-47 (318-21). Van Sickle's path-breaking Harvard dissertation on the Messianic Eclogue is a wayfarer returned.

Gale argues for the pervasive influence of Lucretius in the Georgics in ideas and langauge, particularly in Vergil's presentation of the physical and metaphysical relations between man and beast. Paterson explores the implication of virtus and gloria in successful farming. More than income was involved in the operation.

Horsfall studies Vergil's use of aitia to bind past and present, an Alexandrian technique that accents erudition. Norwood examines Aeneas' recurrent association with buildings and civic construction as paradigm for Augustus' heroic building program. Putnam's lengthy essay provides a valuable summation of past scholarship on the issue of ira and a provocative new reading of a central issue in the epic. Thomas studies furor and furiae in a different context to clarify the issue of essential meanings; when justifiable frenzy is provoked, Vergil modifies the noun: furiis surrexit Etruria iustis. (8.494). Van Nortwick's synoptic view of the heroic journey includes Gilgamesh, the Homeric epics, and Aeneid.

Explication of neglected Aeneid 3 is advanced by two articles: Hersh~kowitz shows that the mini-epic of Aeneid 3, the visit to Buthrotum in particular, structurally reflects the epic as a whole; Ramminger refines earlier arguments about the book and enlarges its compass by study of imitation and allusion. Ketterer argues that the rainbow at the close of Aeneid 4 forecasts coming storms for Aeneas and the Romans as a consequence of Dido's curse. Nugent notices that the voice of dissent regularly belongs to women, singly or collectively, as in Aeneid 5; her study includes an examination of the death of Palinurus. Brenk provides a detailed examination of mythical and historical associations for the Palinurus episode. His second article suggests an allegorical-eschatological approach to problems in Aeneid 6 and shows how the poet reshapes themes which appear in consolatory literature. Perotti is convinced that Dorica castra and alius Achilles suggest the Rutulians and Turnus. Horsfall examines the implications of externus in Aeneid 7-12; the Trojans return to Italy as their patria, but they return as legitimate, full-fledged externi, free from charges of decadent eastern behavior. Boyd's article treats the Camilla episode as a conflation of history and poetry, yielding neither pure figment nor simple history. Camilla's nature and career lie between history and imagination. Thomas sees Aeneas' clipeus as symbolic of tensions with a cosmic confrontation between the forces of disorder (Antony, Cleopatra, and the East) and of order (Agrippa, Octavian, and the West); Apollo, above all, symbolizes cosmic harmony. O'Hara attaches Aeneid 10.717-8 to Mezentius; tergum is an unusual, but characteristically Vergilian usage which is neither grotesque nor absurd. Gransden offers spare but valuable comments on the design and poetics of Book 11. Spence examines Turnus' swordbelt and the slaughtered bridegrooms. The Danaid allusion introduces moral and political ambivalence and the Palatine Apollo temple.

Farron argues that Vergil intended pius (and pietas, gentleness, mercifulness, and kindness) to be construed with verses Aeneid 4.393-5. He examines Vergil's use of language, his attitude to Dido and Aeneas and to love, along with his and the Romans' attitude to the gods. Higgins suggests that the failure of Homeric heroism in the epic symbolizes the failure of violent ``heroism'' in general. The symbolic association of the failure of the old ways of violence with the tension between the Homeric and Vergilian Aeneas implies a model for the future--Augustus must turn out to be better than Octavian. Rauk shows that Androgeos plays an important role in connection with Laocoon, and that he blurs the distinction between Greek and Trojan. Wlosok's contribution is concerned with the morality of vengeance and Aeneas' ultimate act.

Clark views Vergil as comparable to an impressionist painter, conflating elements that ought to be separate to produce a mysterious landscape. Monti questions the methodology of identification of the Sibyl's grotto. He rejects Mario Pagano's recent argument that the carefully worked grotto is a defensive construction; analysis of the literary data, together with topographical and architectonic factors, make Maiuri's identification of the impressive tunnel with the Sibyl's grotto a virtual certainty.

Correspondences between the shield of Aeneas and that of Pheidias' Athena Parthenos, for Cohon, imply an association between the Actian triumph and the rout of the Persians, and consort with the contemporary taste for classical art. Galinsky argues that the intentionally multiple iconography of the ``Tellus'' relief on the Ara Pacis Augustae was deliberately designed to create multiple meanings and associations.

Wiseman's article is concerned, inter alia, with Aeneid 1.292f., and application of the myth to political evolution.

Fantham reveals that Ovid uses Evander as a surrogate for his own homesickness and as a vindication of his innocence. Hinds (Part II, 113-53) suggests that contrasts in the Fasti between arma and their `opposites' function sometimes not merely as a formal aesthetic but as a token of the tension between the moral and political stance in the poet's world and in that of his readers.

Fowler's article on ekphrasis uses Aeneid 1.441-93 as an example. Horsfall's remarks on the illusory footnote and on Vergilian window-dressing for his sophisticated readers are enlightening and entertaining: recherché narratives, mythological homonyms, and anonymous mythical references combine to entertain the erudite. Vergil's opera generally challenge the reader's reading experience and recollections in keeping with the tradition of Hellenistic poetry. Keith revives Mackail's earlier awareness that the overworked ingens apart from imparting tremendous scale may also imply ``innate, native.'' Oksala's ``quartet'' of articles on Vergil's borrowings from Greek in language and usage concludes fortissimo with his study of the epic. Oksala's labors have provided scholars with a reliable resource for further research into the nature of Vergil's art of composition. Rosand's article complements and extends Fowler's article (supra).

Frangoulidis assesses Apuleius' humorous exploitation of Vergil's epic Iliupersis. Luppe is concerned with Pliny's quotation from Aeneid 5.320f., in his letter to Tacitus (VII.20.4). Martin's study of Augustine introduces Vergil's Bucolics and Aeneid in his argument on the structure of the Confessions. Newlands aligns the proem of Georgics 3 with Statius' poetic temple on the Campanian estate of his friend, Pollius Felix. Sarkissian suggests that Vergil is Juenal's spokesman in the prologue of Satire 3 where echoes of Eclogue 1 come through clearly. Wlosok's study of the interpretation of Vergil in late antiquity and thereafter includes the Lives of Focas and Donatus, Biblical exegesis, Vida, and Scaliger.

Starr argues that Donatus' acceptance of the epic was an encomium of Aeneas and Augustus based not on historical and political factors, where he drew a blank, but on the literary ``message,'' and on the ingredients of rhetorical praise and blame, founded on the progymnasma of laudatio. His VERGILIUS article examines how Donatus' legal interests affected his understanding of Vergil's epic.

They provide up-to-date catalogue details on Vergilian editions in the U.K., Europe, and North America. Wlosok's meticulous edition of the Valencia manuscript includes an introduction and a description of the miniatures. Wright's study of the Vatican Vergil testifies to the marvelous qualities of late antique miniature paintings and designs.

MacPhail reveals that the image of the tomb (deriving from Vergil, Horace, and Ovid) became the controlling metaphor for the evocation of the ruins of Rome and a poetic metaphor for the permanence of fame in the poetic grave. The Martindales, after reminding readers that one-third of Shakespeare's plays were set in the ancient world, set about studying the usage under separate headings: Ovid, Troy, Rome, and Stoicism. Scott studies the evolution and adaptations of the Polydorus story from Vergil to Spenser.

Baldwin details how Vergil ``occupied a fair share of Johnson's emotions, intellect, and pen, from schoolboy days to his life's close.'' Partial to Eclogues 1 and 10, and to the bucolic poems generally, he showed less enthusiasm for the Georgics and Aeneid; in the medley of classical quotations in his letters, there are 21 Vergilian tags, with 17 from the epic, 3 from the bucolic poems, and only 1 from the Georgics. Baldwin directs his readers to Johnson's Lives of the Poets where innumerable obiter dicta on Vergil (and other Roman poets) can be excavated.

Hodgson examines Wordsworth's The Prelude and its Vergilian echoes. Keach brings Shelley's ``Julian and Maddalo'' and its male-male relationships into conjunction with Vergil's Bucolics. Poliakoff measures Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness against Vergilian norms. Duncan Wu suggests that Wordsworth's ``Prelude'' is indebted to William Gilpin, John Housman, and Christopher Pitt's translation of the epic.

Nicholson studies Turner's addiction to Vergil's Carthaginian and Cumaean material with illustrations of Turner's paintings in the Clore Gallery in London. Radcliffe treats two grisaille paintings, by Mantegna, both in Montreal's Museum of Fine Arts, of Judith and Dido as portraits of virtuous heroic women. The head of Dido matches a head in Mantegna's Introduction of Cybele, where the goddess is depicted in a marble bust. Mantegna designed a statue of Vergil in 1499 for the Gonzagas of Mantua, specifically for Isabella d'Este, a woman of zeal and erudition, but no marble sculptor could be found to execute the commission.
