The Poetics of the Roman ‘Moderns’ by Theodoros Papangelis is a systematic record (possibly the first of its kind) of the historical, social and literary developments that shaped Alexandrian aesthetics and poetics. These developments in turn created the conditions for the creation of what became known as the moderns, the first modernist movement in Roman poetry, in the first century BC. Papangelis’s discussion of such subjects as intertextuality, ‘pure’ poetry, formalism and interest in historical-social issues goes beyond the confines of academic interest in this useful handbook of contemporary thinking on literary theory.
