Classical literature has a long history of influence on European literature, particularly English. Prof. Ogle takes specific literary conceits, or tropes, and links them to their roots in Classical literature. He focuses specifically on the language of the description of feminine beauty, tracing word choice and imagery to Alexandrian Greek poetry through its Roman adaptations. This work of comparative literature offers insights to Classicists and scholars of English literature.
