By Kathleen S. Lamp

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

Lamp starts off through learning rhetorical treatises, these texts so much accepted to students of rhetoric, and strikes directly to these most manifestly utilizing rhetorical strategies in visible shape. She then arrives at these items least recognizable as rhetorical artifacts, yet possibly most important to the day-by-day lives of the Roman people—coins, altars, wall portray. This development additionally captures the advance of the Augustan political delusion 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, lines its stream, and at last samples its well known receptions and variations. In doing so, Lamp inserts a long-excluded notwithstanding major audience—the universal humans of Rome—into modern understandings of rhetorical background and considers Augustan tradition as major in shaping civic id, encouraging civic participation, and selling social advancement.

Lamp ways the connection among classical rhetoric and Augustan tradition via a transdisciplinary method drawn from archaeology, artwork and architectural historical past, numismatics, classics, and rhetorical reports. 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, therefore supplying a counterstatement to the “decline narrative” that rhetorical perform withered within the early Roman Empire. hence Lamp’s paintings offers a step towards filling the disciplinary hole among Cicero and the second one Sophistic.
