Os limites de uma comparação: «ut pictura poesis»
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (128,54 kB)

Miguel Mora, de, Carlos

The comparison between poetry and painting stands as one of the topics more repeatedly dealt with by authors and researchers of all times, who very often resort to the famous statement made by Horace in verse 361 of his Art of Poetry. However, the inappropriate use of the expression has had the effect of bestowing upon the Venusian author’s dictum some meanings which in all likelihood the author hadn’t originally anticipated. In this article, we wish to assess the conceptual width of this renowned comparison and point out the limitations we should impose upon it.

Artículo alojado en InterClassica (116,37 kB)

Alberto, Paulo Farmhouse

This paper focuses on the importance of the myths of the foundation of Rome in the construction of the public image and the promotion of the political program of Augustus. Within this field, a most important piece is the Ara Pacis Augustae, an emblematic monument designed by Augustus and his entourage to promote an ideological and political message in contemporary society, perpetuating it for future generations.


O drama dos Atridas. A tragédia Thyestes de Séneca
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (198,99 kB)

Soares, Nair de Nazaré Castro

We suggest a reading of Seneca’s tragedy Thyestes, focussing on the stylistic and ideological analysis of representative passages. The rhetorical, poetic and dramatic expression, revolving around keywords and semantic areas the author wishes to stress impressively, is made to serve the purpose of moralisation and parenesis, incorporating both êthos and pathos. The political and human message it conveys, combined with the fact that it embodies the living testimony of its time, transform it into the paradigm of horror drama, a genre largely revived in modern stage.


A influência do Cristianismo no conceito de casamento e de vida privada na Antiguidade Tardia
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (151,35 kB)

Dias, Paula Barata

Christianity has contributed for the survival and enduring influence of a moral, social and legal view on marriage and private life whose foundations were laid in the pagan Roman world during the first centuries of our era and have lasted, with little oscillations, up to the present. It became the role of Christianity, by becoming the official religion in the Roman world, to give universal status to a lifestyle that paganism had merely proposed to Roman élites: the marriage with uniform, lasting and state-acknowledged juridical characteristics, the core family, countenance and celibacy are aspects that, having been effortlessly adopted by the Christian religious message, rapidly became dominant, pagan being as it was already eager for new proposals. St. Jerome’s letters bear witness to this new mentality that, while sanctioning public intervention, be it political or religious, on the individual’s private life, spreads countenance and celibacy as a model.


La figura de Paris en el «Libro de Alexandre»
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (118,93 kB)

Solís Perales, María Dolores

The mythical figure of Paris plays an essential role in the Trojan War. The fact that Helen — Menelaus’ wife — is kidnapped, triggers off the conflict, and the name of Paris turns out to be so important that a legendary biography finds its way in the text and is carefully followed by the author. This story becomes a lesson for Alexander’s troops and also for well-educated people in the 13th century.


A mitologia clássica no humanismo do renascimento português
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (115,76 kB)

Martins Melo, António Maria

We aim to reflect on the importance of mythology in 15th century Latin discourse, highlighting its close connection to the Christian worldview. A similar attitude is to be found in 3th century Christian authors and in biblical texts.


Poesía de poetas latinos actuales
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (141,08 kB)

Lavalle, Raúl

Classics teachers don’t pay much attention to Neo-Latin texts and even less to contemporary authors writing in Latin. However, it is possible to come across several texts, both in the web and in print. In this article, we have selected and commented on some Latin poems by five modern authors who write verse following ancient metre but with an updated spirit. They are Florindo Di Monaco, Alain Van Dievoet, Gerd Allesch, Brad Walton and John Lee. We have attempted to show that these works are worthy of attention. In the conclusion, we have pointed out some of the merits of both these poetic works are their authors.
