Dryden and the Traces of Classical Rome

Paul Hammond

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on how Dryden's English was enticingly engaged in an intricate dialogue with Latin, a play which contributed importantly to the meaning and pleasure of the text. It shows how Dryden turns most insistently to classical allusion and quotation in order to shape his own authorial persona, in a move which combines self-assertion with self-abnegation.
