Applying modern critical theory to the interpretation of Latin poetry, the author argues for a critical approach wherein the meaning of a text is necessarily involved in the process of "reception"-- as illustrated through exemplary readings of Virgil, Ovid, Horace and Lucan.

This book is a major literary reevaluation of Lucan's epic poem, the Bellum Civile ("The Civil War"). Its main purpose is to bring out the implications of one basic premise: this poem is not only about civil war, but uses the metaphor of civil war (i.e. self-destruction and internal discord) as the basis for the way it tells its story. Aimed primarily at classicists, the book offers a provocative new interpretation of most of the important issues in the poem, while attempting to avoid the glibness of generalization by concentrating on detailed readings of selected parts of the text.

We see fewer and fewer serious attempts to seek the Torah's evaluation of new ideas and behavior... This is the way one treats antiquities: by protecting them in museums, they lose any relevance to the present. More important, this is not the way Jews have treated their Torah throughout history. From time immemorial, Jews have taken the risk of misinterpreting the Torah. They have done so in order to find guidance, inspiration, and truth for themselves and their communities. This, perhaps more than anything else, has allowed our ancient Torah to be a living document for the Jewish people.
