"I can't go on. I'll go on." Silence as a multifunctional concept in Latin Domitianic literature (ca. 81-105) Ghent University
This project seeks to examen the function(s) of silence in Latin literature written during and just after the reign of the Roman emperor Domitian (ca.81-105). The uses of silence(s) in texts will be explored as a narratological phenomenon; as a possible commentary on the generic hierarcy; and as a way for authors to create a self-image in an imperial culture.
