Aspects of Achilles Tatius’ influence on Late Antiquity literature
Summary:
The scope of the specific thesis is the influence and impact that Leucippe and Clitophon by Achilles Tatius had in multiple Late Antiquity works. This novel, with its controversial way of using prevalent traits of the genre, had notable resonance with literary production during the imperial years. Among the wide range of works connected via their intertextuality with the novel in question, this thesis analyzes in order, through individual chapters, how the Erotic Letters of Aristaenetus, the epic poem Dionysiaca of Nonnus, and the epyllion of Musaeus interact with Achilles Tatius. The similarities with romance novels in general and specifically with the one Tatius wrote can be spotted in the works mentioned above. They are significantly predominant at an expression level, where there can be noted more than a few instances of repetition of the specific author verbatim, as well as at a context level. Nevertheless, more of interest is the visible deviation tendency of the subjects in question from their prototype, from which they are differentiated through the utterly different logic that rules each of them. Consequently, it has to do with imitatio cum variatione, a strategy that permits those writers to adapt the differential characteristics of the novel to the genre traits of their own works.
