Lucan is the wild maverick among Latin epic poets. Sneered at for over a century for failing to conform to humanist canons of taste and propriety, in recent years his work has been gaining in reputation. This 1992 book is founded on a genuine admiration for Lucan's unique, perverse, and spellbinding masterpiece.

Published September 10, 2007 by Cambridge University Press. When Caesar finally appears as an actor, after Lucan's extensive introduction at the beginning of book 1 (1-182), he crosses a number of boundaries. Sneered at for over a century for failing to conform to humanist cans of taste and propriety, in recent years his work has been gaining in reputation. Above all, Dr Masters argues, the poem is obsessed with civil war, t only as the subject of the story it tells, but as a metaphor which determines the way that story is told.

This book is a major literary reevaluation of Lucan's epic poem, the Bellum Civile ("The Civil War"). Its main purpose is to bring out the implications of one basic premise: this poem is not only about civil war, but uses the metaphor of civil war (i.e. self-destruction and internal discord) as the basis for the way it tells its story. Aimed primarily at classicists, the book offers a provocative new interpretation of most of the important issues in the poem, while attempting to avoid the glibness of generalization by concentrating on detailed readings of selected parts of the text.
