THIS BOOK REVITALISES THE FIELD OF PATER STUDIES AT THE INTERSECTION BETWEEN ITALIAN AND INTERNATIONAL CRITICAL TRADITIONS ON THE FIN DE SIE`CLE. MUCH CAN BE SAID ON PATER IN THE LIGHT OF RECENT CRITICAL PRONOUNCEMENTS. THE RENEWED FOCUS ON HIS ROLE AS A CLASSICIST, OR AS A PRECURSOR OF TWENTIETH-CENTURY CULTURAL THEORY, OR AS A SOPHISTICATED PRACTITIONER OF INTERTEXTUALITY, ALL OFFER MATERIAL FOR DISCUSSION. WALTER PATER: RECEPTION, REWRITING, ADAPTATION ADOPTS THESE TRENDS TO READ PATER`S WORK FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF DIVERSE FORMS OF INTERTEXTUALITY THAT ARE RECURRENT IN HIS PERCEPTION OF PAST AND PRESENT WESTERN CULTURE. PATER WAS SUCH A MULTIFACETED AUTHOR THAT THE IMBRICATED PRESENCE OF A VARIETY OF TEXTS, NOT NECESSARILY LITERARY, IN HIS WRITINGS IS ANYTHING BUT SURPRISING. IN PARTICULAR, BOTH CLASSICAL AND MODERN MYTHS ARE A CONSTANT IN HIS APPROPRIATIONS AND MAY PROVIDE FRESH IDEAS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH. PATER`S RECEPTION AND REWRITING OF ITALIAN CULTURE IS ANOTHER UNDEREXPLORED TOPIC AND A MAIN CONCERN OF THIS VOLUME. THE DIVERSE MODES OF APPROPRIATION HERE SELECTED AND COMBINED WILL ALLOW US TO GAIN A NEW APPRECIATION OF THE COMPLEXITY OF PATER`S TEXTUALITY.
