SILVESTRI, Leonor. De musa a poeta: Suplicia en capital romana. Cuad.Sur, Let. [online]. 2004, n.34, pp. 115-137. ISSN 2362-2970.

This communication aims at Sulpicia's poems which are the only ones left of a roman woman writing literature. Sulpicia's poems are part of Tibulo's corpus (III, 13- 18). She has been fully recognized as Servius Sulpicius Rufus and Valeria's daughter, who was Mesala Corvinus' sister. After her father's death, Mesala became her legal tutor and probably her literary mentor.The first part of this paper tries to set the theoretical approach to deal with the "blurring" of women's literature in ancient times as a fact built by the modern analysis and not as a "real" situation in their times. The second part will introduce Sulpicia as a poetess, member of a group of poets, who she was having an intertextual dialogue with. We will analyze her poems not as evidence or testimonia of women's sexuality in Rome but in their poetic stylistic dimension bearing in mind the connotations of her poetic partenaire's name, Cerinthus.

Palavras-chave : Feminism; Ancient Roman Poetry; Sulpicia.
