The Irish classical self : poets and poor scholars in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

The Irish Classical Self' considers the function of classical languages and studying within the development of Irish cultural identities within the eighteenth and 19th centuries, focusing particularly at the "lower ranks" of society. This eighteenth century concept of the "classical self" grew partially out of influential identification narratives constructed within the 17th century through clerics at the eu continent: responding to influential evaluations of the Irish as ignorant barbarians, they released works demonstrating the worth and antiquity of indigenous tradition and made conventional annalistic claims concerning the antiquity of Irish and connections among eire and the biblical and classical international extensively identified.

Example text

25 virgil and augustus ``propaganda,'' as he calls it, preserves the following core in his vision of the poet: First of all, it seems quite plain that Virgil was himself a convinced Augustan. '' He really saw in Augustus the type of man who could bring peace out of fratricidal war, order from anarchy, self-control from sel®sh passion, in a sense, an ``age of gold'' from an age of iron. He also saw in Rome the paradigm and goal of all historical activity, in Roman pietas, virtus, and consilium the only hope of peace and social order, of humane behaviour associated with strong government.

Galinsky constantly inveighs against ``the inane `optimism vs. ) about the end, or any other part of Virgil's poem, and the justice of its hero's actions. In all of this there seems to be a curious obliviousness of the fact that critics, while wishing away the topic, in the process engage that very topic, along with its entourage of controversies, and in fully partisan fashion but almost unconsciously so, precisely because of unquestioned assumptions about Virgil's classical and Augustan status.

27 Vita Donati claims (50±3) that he even carried out a court case, though his voice was not up to the job. See Horsfall (1995) 9 on Virgil's oratorical training. 12. 29 Conte (1994) 3. 10 roman boys and men reading virgil The hidden quality of much of Virgilian ideology is in my view intended (cf. quod . . accipi volumus, in Quintilian's Latin, where the producer of meaning is the subject). At least it is intended on the atomic level of the individual word, phrase and so on. The full global e¨ect of Virgil's poetry, and the force of the accumulation of these utterances, is perhaps a di¨erent matter, and may have to do with its acquiring a momentum and dimension that went even beyond those intentions.
