Publication : 1974 In : Journal of Roman Studies, 64Description : p. 40-61Langue : Anglais. Auteur principal: White, Peter Résumé : Poets' published books represented in antiquity only the last end least important means of communicating their work to patrons. Poems were primarily communicated by means of recitation, impromptu performance, and private brochure. Dedication of an ancient work was much more informal than the modern practice, consisting of a passage which directly addresses or invokes someone whom the author wishes to honor by the presentation of his text. Martial's dedications appear to represent the ancient practice closely, while those of Statius are more in the spirit of the modern dedication, which aims at garnering patronage and good will for the author's work.Sujets:latin (langue) -- dédicace -- littérature Chrono:Antiquité romaine -- Haut-Empire romain -- Empire romain Mots libres: Silves Stat -- Epigrammes Martial .
