Abstract:
			
Literature in English is hardly ever entirely in English. Contact with
other languages takes place, for example, whenever foreign languages
are introduced, or if a native style is self-consciously developed, or
when aspects of English are remade in the image of another
language. Since the Renaissance, Latin and Greek have been an
important presence in British poetry and prose. This is partly because
of the importance of the ideals and ideologies founded and elaborated
on Roman and Greek models. Latin quotations and latinate English have
always been ways to represent, scrutinize, or satirize the influential
values associated with Rome. The importance of Latin and Greek is also
due to the fact that they have helped to form and define a variety of
British social groups. Lawyers, Catholics, and British gentlemen
invested in Latin as one source of their distinction from
non-professionals, from Protestants, and from the unleisured. British
attitudes toward Greek and Latin have been highly charged because the
animus that existed between groups has also been directed toward these
languages themselves. English Literature and Ancient Languages is a
study of literary uses of language contact, of English literature in
conjunction with Latin and Greek. While the book's emphasis is
literary, that is formal and verbal, its goal is to discover how
social interests and cultural ideas are, and are not, mediated through
language.
