The intertextuality in Latin epic poetry

ABSTRACT. This paper analyzes the use of digital resources in the Latin poetry study. The first part will examine the explanation of intertextuality applied in the studies of Latin epic poems, with a specific reading of the epic De Raptu Proserpinae of Claudius Claudianus (c. 370 – c. 404 AD). In the second section, I propose an example of the use of informatic tools for the research of the intertextual literary links between De Raptu Proserpinae and Achilleid of Publius Papinius Statius (1st century AD). The conclusions reflect on the new technologies that today can potentially facilitate the process of codification and representation of the sources of the ancient classical literature.
