Abstract: »The final essay in the volume, "Teaching Rape in Roman Elegy," is divided into two parts by two different authors. Genevieve Lively first investigates this topic for courses taught in the United Kingdom, while Sharonn James does the same for courses taught in the United States. Both ask pressing questions that often arise from today's students (especially, but not only, from female students), worrisome questions that hit at the heart of personal response to the poetry and to our students: the relation between the representation and reality; what kinds of matters we should be raising in our reading and teaching of elegy; resistant ways of reading; how to teach disturbing subject.« (Source: Barbara K.
