Monsters in Greco-Roman literature


Biography

Treasa is a sixth year graduate student at Yale University and a current GSI for R44, 'Introduction to Western Civilisation'.

Her dissertation, ‘Hideous Progeny’: the monster as a metapoetic topos in Latin hexameters, argues for the existence of a sustained connection between monsters and intertextual practices in ancient poetry. Treasa’s interests include all things allusion and intertext, notions of genre, and the intersignification of the body and the poetic corpus in antiquity.
