Description

From the 12th through the 15th centuries, the Augustan poet Ovid's commanding presence in French and Anglo-Norman vernacular literature took complex and varied forms that recent criticism has interpreted in increasingly compelling ways. Moving beyond the question of “influence”, this pair of sessions on “Ovid’s Medieval Metamorphoses” will approach the medieval French reception of Ovid's Latin poetry as a case study in the techniques and stakes of cultural translation. By tracing the development and transmission of innovative Ovidianisms--that is, the evolution of markedly Ovidian but distinctively medieval discourses, themes and motifs--over the course of the Middle Ages, the sessions will also uncover the ways in which medieval poets use the Ovidian tradition to wrestle with (and transform) generic paradigms and literary ideologies and to construct personal and textual authority.
