The present volume contains revised versions of most of the papers that were delivered at RICAN 7, which was held in Rethymnon, Crete, on 27-28 May 2013.

Splendide Mendax

Splendide Mendax

Book

Author: Edmund P. Cueva and Javier Martínez (Eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789491431982

Publication year: 2016

Many new and fruitful avenues of investigation open up when scholars consider forgery as a creative act rather than a crime. We invited authors to contribute work without imposing any restrictions beyond a willingness to consider new approaches to the subject of ancient fakes and forgeries. The result is this volume, in which our aim is to display some of the many possibilities available to scholarship when the forger is regarded as "splendide mendax" - splendidly untruthful.

The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

Book

Author: Richard Stoneman, Kyle Erickson and Ian Netton (eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789491431043

Publication year: 2012

The story of Alexander became the subject of legend in the medieval west, but was perhaps even more pervasive in the east. The Alexander Romance was translated into Syriac in the sixth century and may have become current in Persia as early as the third century AD. From these beginnings it reached into the Persian national epic, the Shahnameh, into Jewish traditions, and into the Qur’an and subsequent Arab romance. The papers in this volume all have the aim of deepening our understanding of this complex development.

Publication year: 2018

The papers assembled in this volume, which were originally presented at a conference at the University of Wrocław, Poland, in October 2015, all face the challenge of defining the Alexander Romance. Some focus on quite specific topics while others address more overarching themes. They form a cohesive set of approaches to the delicate positioning of the text between history and literature.

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

Book

Author: Marília P. Futre Pinheiro, Gareth Schmeling, Edmund P. Cueva

ISBN-13: 9789491431661

Publication year: 2014

Despite the fact that postmodern aesthetics deny the existence or validity of genres, the tendency nowadays is to assume that there was in Antiquity a homogeneous group of works of narrative prose fiction that, despite their differences, displayed a series of recurrent, iterative, thematic, and formal characteristics, which allows us to label them novels. The papers assembled in this volume include extended prose narratives of all kind and thereby widen and enrich the scope of the canon.

What is the significance of Bakhtin's work for our understanding of ancient literary culture and its role in the history of European literature?
