By Kathleen S. Lamp

In A urban of Marble, Kathleen Lamp argues that classical rhetorical idea formed the Augustan cultural campaigns and that during flip the Augustan cultural campaigns functioned rhetorically to aid Augustus achieve and preserve strength and to steer civic identification and participation within the Roman Principate (27 b. c. e.—14 c. e.).

Lamp starts off through learning rhetorical treatises, these texts so much widespread to students of rhetoric, and strikes directly to these most glaringly utilizing rhetorical innovations in visible shape. She then arrives at these gadgets least recognizable as rhetorical artifacts, yet might be most important to the day-by-day lives of the Roman people—coins, altars, wall portray. This development additionally captures the improvement of the Augustan political fantasy that Augustus used to be destined to rule and lead Rome to greatness as a descendant of the hero Aeneas.

A urban of Marble examines the institution of this fable in country rhetoric, strains its flow, and at last samples its renowned receptions and variations. In doing so, Lamp inserts a long-excluded notwithstanding major audience—the universal humans of Rome—into modern understandings of rhetorical heritage and considers Augustan tradition as major in shaping civic identification, encouraging civic participation, and selling social advancement.

Lamp techniques the connection among classical rhetoric and Augustan tradition via a transdisciplinary method drawn from archaeology, paintings and architectural heritage, numismatics, classics, and rhetorical reviews. through doing so, she grounds Dionysius of Halicarnassus’s claims that the Principate represented a renaissance of rhetoric rooted in tradition and a go back to an Isocratean philosophical version of rhetoric, hence providing a counterstatement to the “decline narrative” that rhetorical perform withered within the early Roman Empire. therefore Lamp’s paintings presents a step towards filling the disciplinary hole among Cicero and the second one Sophistic.
