1. Hughes, Emma E. Epistemology as a Foundation for Epicurean Thought.

Degree: MA, Classics, 2012, Florida State University

Epicurean philosophy is perhaps best known for its ethical system, which places an emphasis on the pursuit of pleasure and avoidance of pain, and for its removal of the gods from the physical world. While many approaches have been made to interpret Epicureanism through its ethics, I believe that the whole of the Epicurean system of philosophy can be comprehended by a thorough understanding of its epistemology. Using Lucretius' De Rerum Natura, I hope to show that Epicurean thought is based not on ethics but rather on the epistemological claim that the senses cannot be rebutted. In doing so, I will also resolve some of the inherent contradictions that arise from the Epicureans' empirical understanding of the world, such as how the senses can be deceived, and how the world can be comprised of imperceptible atoms.

2. Bebergal, Craig. A Student's Commentary on Heroides 5, 16, and 17.

Degree: PhD, 2013, Florida State University

This dissertation presents a thorough, line-by-line commentary of Ovid's Heroides 5, 16, and 17 (Oenone to Paris, Paris to Helen, and Helen to Paris) with an eye towards assisting the 3rd year high-school student or 3rd semester college student in translating and appreciating the grammatical, poetic, and allusory skill of Ovid, while still providing substantial textual discussion that will appeal to more advanced scholars. The introduction explains the theoretical and practical considerations which shaped the commentary, which takes an in-depth view of each couplet presenting the Latin lines of the subject poems along with ad loc. discussions on grammar, syntax, allusion, intertextuality, poetic structure, and character psychology. Additionally, literal translations, tables of mythological references and stylistic devices, as well as a brief discussion on the dating and sources of these poems are included. Through this multi-faceted approach to examining these poems, the reader is able to gain greater understanding of the complexity inherent in these elegiac epistles. The introductions to each poem and the introduction to the entire dissertation are meant to provide readers insight into the psychological profiles of the characters in question, particularly where they fit into the meta-literary traditions of epic and tragedy from which they are plucked. Special attention is paid to how these characters have been shaped by their past literary lives as well as by their new-found elegiac surroundings.

3. Watkins, Sara, 1983-. Lucan "Transforms" Ovid: Intertextual Studies in the Bellum Civile and the Metamorphoses.

Degree: PhD, Classics, 2012, Florida State University

Although many of Lucan's allusions to Ovid are well-known, studies which contextualize them with the care that has been done with, e.g., Lucan and Vergil are still few in number. My goal in this study is to make a substantial contribution to the growing understanding of Ovid's influence upon Lucan. In seeking to move beyond the emulation-alone model as a way of explaining their poetic interactions, I examine a number of intertextual links between Lucan's Bellum Civile and Ovid's Metamorphoses, and I demonstrate how Lucan appropriates Ovidian material to articulate and enhance his broader poetic goals and vision.
