Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Writing Exile: The Discourse of Displacement in Greco-Roman Antiquity and Beyond contains the table of contents, preface, list of abbreviations and notes on the contributors of the book. The book show that the topic of exile in antiquity is not at all limited to the three most prominent exiles Cicero, Ovid, and Seneca, but that this trias exulum has to be placed in a far larger and more complex discourse of exile and displacement, ranging from Cynicism to Late Antiquity. It adopts an even broader perspective, tracing traditions of concepts and motifs from the oral antecedents of the Iliad and the Odyssey down to the age of Petrarch.

Keywords: Greco Roman-Antiquity; Iliad; Petrarch
