«Prendere ad esempio». Quando padri e figli sono innamorati (con una lettura di Sen. contr. ii 6)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper investigates the theme of erotic rivalry between father and son in Roman declamation, particularly in Ps. Quint. decl. 356, Calp. decl. 37 and, especially, in Sen. contr. ii 6. The analysis emphasizes the decisive contribution of the comedy to outlining this kind of conflict, also interpreted according to Quintilian’s theoretical reflection on this scholastica materia.
