Livy and Intertextuality.
Papers of a Conference Held at the University of Texas at Austin,
October 3, 2009 

Wolfgang Polleichtner (Ed.)

This collection of essays focuses on Livy's way of employing intertextual strategies in dealing with his direct and indirect sources. In sum, this perspective throws Livy's literary aspirations as an author of historiography into sharper relief. Livy emerges as a thoughtful critic not only of his sources but also of historiographical methodologies.
