Ovidius declamans: The influence of declamation in Ovid's heroides IV

Barbara da Costa e Silva, Cecilia Ugartemendía

Resumo


Declamation, the exercise on a fictive forensic or deliberative situation practised in the schools of rhetoric, became popular in the Augustan Era. Its influence on literature can be noticed: Ovid, above all, is not free from its style and language. Seneca, the Elder (Contr. 2.2.8-12), for example, gives a testimonial of Ovid's activities as a declamator. Therefore this paper discusses the Heroides IV, an epistle that belongs to one of Ovid´s most rhetorical works, in the light of the declamatory genre, focusing on style, like the use of sententiae, and other thematic and structural similarities.
