Reading Frontinus in Pliny, Epistles 5.1

Research output: Working paper


This working paper ties into a broader article (in preparation) on 'Reading Frontinus in Pliny's Epistles', and considers the role played by both Frontinus and Corellius Rufus in Pliny’s self-portraiture in Ep. 5.1. It explores the possibility that some of it is mediated through a network of (loose) literary interactions with other letters by Pliny, Tacitus' Agricola, and Frontinus' De Aquis; and in so doing, it raises questions about where literary interaction, intertextuality, allusion and reference might start and stop.
