Ebook description:

This ebook affords a charming new interpretation of Lucian as a fictional theorist and author to face alongside the novelists of the day, bringing to bear on his works a complete new set of studying methods. It argues that the aesthetic and cultural points Lucian confronted, in a world of mimesis and replication, had been akin to these present in postmodern contexts: the ubiquity of the faux, the erasure of origins, the deal with the freakish and peculiar on the expense of the standard. Along with exploring the feel of Lucian’s personal writing, Dr. ni Mheallaigh makes use of Lucian as a focus via which to look at different fictional texts of the interval, together with Antonius Diogenes’ The Unbelievable Issues Past Thule , Dictys’ Journal of the Trojan Warfare and Ptolemy Chennus’ Novel Historical past , and divulges the significance of fiction’s engagement with its modern tradition of writing, leisure and surprise.
