A considerable body of recent scholarship has been devoted to inves­tigating the ways in which societies remember, studying not only what they construct as memorable but also why and how they do so. Adopt­ing a narrower focus, this volume examines the ways in which different aspects and images of the Roman Republic are created and exploited by the Augustan poets. The poetry of the Augustan age has traditionally been regarded as the high point of Roman literature, combining as it does consummate artistry with a rich array of ‘timeless’ themes such as love, politics and the relation between individual and society.
