This thematic fourth Supplementum to Ancient Narrative, entitled Metaphor and the Ancient Novel, is a collection of revised versions of papers originally read at the Second Rethymnon International Conference on the Ancient Novel (RICAN 2) under the same title, held at the University of Crete, Rethymnon, on May 19-20, 2003.

Though research into metaphor has reached staggering proportions over the past twenty-five years, this is the first volume dedicated entirely to the subject of metaphor in relation to the ancient novel. Not every contributor takes into account theoretical discussions of metaphor, but the usefulness of every single paper lies in the fact that they explore actual texts while sometimes theorists tend to work out of context.

Reviews

"It has long been recognized that the themes of shifting identities, cultural translation, and seeing double hold a special place within the ancient novel. There has also been a recurring interest (ever since the first, ancient interpreters of these texts) in the way in which they tend to hint at deeper meanings -- religious or otherwise -- lying beneath their frivolous surfaces. What has not been systematically exposed in the past is the way in which their fascination with metaphor so often functions as a space for exploring both these preoccupations. This volume rises to that challenge admirably." Jason König in the Journal of Roman Studies (2006), 96: 267-268.

"The contributors have shown a pleasing and provocative richness and complexity both to the concept of 'metaphor' and to its application in ancient literature. In this regard, and as a result, philologists of all literary niches will find new ways of thinking through ancient texts." Gillian McIntosh, Calvin College (gm22@calvin.edu) in the Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 2007.04.17, http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/bmcr/2007/2007-04-17.html.
