La messa a fuoco del mito in questo nuovo volume dell'Accademia Properziana in cui sono stati raccolti gli atti del Covegno tenutosi ad Assisi – Bevagna nel maggio 2014 sarà accolta con particolare interessamento dagli studiosi del settore perché, pur rappresentando un ritorno su questa componente di indubbio rilievo dell'opera properziana attestata nel  volume Properzio tra storia arte mito (Assisi 2004), lascia scorgere una ricerca nuova e un'indagine più puntuale e sistematica. Le figure del mito sia greco sia romano sono infatti le portatrici di valori e simboli tuttora vivi e significativi alla fine del primo secolo a.C. tanto che riuscì legare ad essi la dimensione poetica e letteraria e il lascito della sua produzione. Posti di fronte all'ambiguità della forma mitica, reperibile come pensiero religioso e filosofico, allusione storica e immagine nella letteratura e delle arti figurative siamo anche noi stimolati dall'interrogativo se Properzio credesse – e in quale misura –  ai suoi miti.

Sh. Dillon et Sh. L. James, Women in the Classical World

The study of women in Graeco-Roman antiquity has a long history but many recent developments—prominent among which are the rise of feminist theory and theoretical and interpretive work in material culture—have transformed approaches to the study of women's lived experiences in antiquity. This four-volume collection brings together the best scholarship that has both established the field and moved it forward.
The articles collected here are interdisciplinary, bringing into conversation the full range of evidence for women in the classical world: historical, literary, legal, medical, inscriptional, mythic, artistic (e.g., sculpture, frescoes, paintings, terracottas), and the material found in archaeological excavations, including evidence from burials, finds from houses, and the remains of food processing and textile production. Ideology is relevant to each volume, as both Greek and Roman societies had highly developed ideologies and cultural ideals that exercised profound and pervasive influence over women's lives. Social class is implicated in these ideologies in ways that are made evident in every genre of source material.
Women in the Classical World, edited by two of the leading scholars in the field, presents in one reference source a complete picture of women in Ancient Greece and Rome, based on a vast of array of sources. This material has not been collected together in one place before.

Pline le Jeune, Lettres. Livre X

Pline le Jeune, Lettres. Livre X. Texte établi et traduit par Hubert Zehnacker et Nicole Méthy, Paris, 2017.

Éditeur : Les Belles Lettres
Collection : Collection des universités de France
XXXII + 224 pages
ISBN : 978-2-251-01474-6
45 €


NOUVELLE ÉDITION ET TRADUCTION.
Le Livre X des Lettres de Pline regroupe 124 lettres, parmi lesquelles 51 sont des réponses de l'empereur Trajan, les autres étant de Pline lui-même. Sans pouvoir être rapproché du discours d'apparat qu'est le Panégyrique de Trajan, ce livre ne se confond pas non plus avec les neuf premiers livres des lettres, dont il se distingue par son éminent destinataire et par les sujets abordés.
Plus énigmatique, il a suscité des interprétations différentes sinon contradictoires. Ainsi, cet échange entre le maître du monde romain et un des hommes de lettres les plus célèbres de son temps fait de ce livre, unique dans toute la littérature latine conservée, un de ses textes les plus complexes.
