Representational transparency may prove an obstacle rather than a means to achieving that effect. Accordingly, in place of a transparent account of one side against the other, Lucan deploys arresting narrative and rhetorical techniques to provoke sublime experience.
The narrator thus engages readers in a moment of shared narrative loss the refusal in order to jolt them with rhetorical energy, opening a path to sublime experience.

Both seek sublime experience in defiance of cosmic boundaries and traditional pieties, but in Epicurus the byproduct is psychological freedom for all who follow suit, whereas Caesar denies freedom to all but himself. Nonetheless, critical engagement with the sublime substantially enriches scholarly conversation on the end of the poem. Day argues that the battle paradoxically both erases the pre-Pharsalian Roman identity and preserves it as an inaccessible past self. Pompey, embodying this pre-Pharsalian identity, projects sublimity through the tension between magnitude and decay, as in the programmatic simile likening him to a lofty, yet weak-rooted oak.
Pompey and the historical identity that he embodies abide not in spite of their destruction, but through it.

In sum, this is a very important book that gives Lucan studies a significant new critical lens through which to reconsider existing interpretations and to develop new ones. Readers will find this book well edited, clear, and very well written. Related Papers. Day, Lucan and the Sublime.
