The Vergilian Century
The turn of the century seems an opportune moment to take stock, to look back and to look forward. And like many other students of Latin literature, I have felt for a number of years that our discipline is in the midst of an important change. As a Vergilian, I reflexively think about these matters in terms of the author to whom I am most committed. But as someone with interests in the motifs and processes that shape scholarly discourse, I recognize that Vergilian terms may not be sufficient to account for the changes in which we are all involved.
