NeMLA 2019: Classical Metanarrative, Aesthetics, and the Creative Process

Ancient Greece and Rome have had a profound influence on subsequent literature. While our analyses of Classical literature, philosophy, and art often focus on the characters and stories they depict, these works often served as a means to examine the aesthetic process itself. One of the earliest surviving Greek texts, Homer’s Iliad, goes so far as to depict its protagonist Achilles singing of ancient heroes and strumming his lyre as a means of determining the effect of being remembered in epic.

The literature of ancient Greece and Rome has survived for thousands of years. As a result, Classical literary and philosophical works have served as a profound influence on the writings of subsequent time periods. Indeed, in many subsequent time periods, the ability to quote from Classical sources became a marker of status and intelligence. However, many works of ancient Greece and Rome are not wholly original, but in fact flaunt their use of source materials, citing earlier versions of myths and epics. Often, Classical and post-Classical authors would modify their source materials, and we are able to see them not only as writers, but as readers in their own right.

George Eliot at 200

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Middlemarch ends by praising those “who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.” This was not, of course, the fate of the novel’s author. Born in 1819, George Eliot became one of the best-known writers of Victorian England. In addition to her novels, Eliot wrote on social and religious questions, translated German philosophy and criticism, and lived in an at-the-time scandalous relationship with fellow writer George Henry Lewes. Few regarded Eliot with indifference: Nietzsche called her a “little moralistic female;” Trollope complained that she was “obscure from her too great desire to be pungent;” Woolf said that she created “one of the few English novels written for grown-up people.”
