9780299229702: Nox Philologiae: Aulus Gellius and the Fantasy of the Roman Library (Wisconsin Studies in Classics)

In this strikingly original and playful work, Erik Gunderson examines questions of reading the past—an enterprise extending from antiquity to the present day. This esoteric and original study focuses on the equally singular work of Aulus Gellius—a Roman author and grammarian (ca. 120-180 A.D.), possibly of African origin. Gellius’s only work, the twenty-volume Noctes Atticae,is an exploding, sometimes seemingly random text-cum-diary in which Gellius jotted down everything of interest he heard in conversation or read in contemporary books. Comprising notes on Roman and classical grammar, geometry, philosophy, and history, it is a one-work overview of Latin scholarship, thought, and intellectual culture, a combination condensed library and cabinet of curiosities.            Gunderson tackles Gellius with exuberance, placing him in the larger culture of antiquarian literature. Purposely echoing Gellius’s own swooping word-play and digressions, he explores the techniques by which knowledge was produced and consumed in Gellius’s day, as well as in our own time. The resulting book is as much pure creative fun as it is a major work of scholarship informed by the theories of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Jacques Derrida.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

“As a practice antiquarianism concerns itself with symbols of violence as well as symbolic violence. . . . The process entails the mastery of others as well as the mastery of the self. Preliminary to either conquest, though, one masters the contents of books. This ?rst success empowers the scholar to challenge all competitors.”—excerpt from Nox Philologiae
