  • Note di contenuto: [...]Chapter 5, The Inward Turn, explores in a selective manner the reception of the myth in modern times and takes account of the vastness and diversity of interpretations. Where P. innovates, however, is in her nuanced discussions of the elegiacization of the epic (and tragic) gure of Dido (pp. 1416, also called a metamorphosis); the notion that the letter substitutes for Virgils Anna, with a focus on Didos conversation-like writing to the moment (pp. 1718 with nn.); and her sensitivity to both the positive and negative aspects of Didos self-portrayal (e.g. pp. 1520 on her innocence and simultaneous [self-]humiliation and vengefulness, pp. 15 and 76 on her bourgeois sensibilities, oering Aeneas comforts he does not want). Each of these also features in the lemmata. Because The Classical Review vol. 58 no. 2 The Classical Association 2008; all rights reserved
