Pagán (classics, U. of Florida) examines representations of the garden in classical Roman literature as "sets of polarities or oppositions, as narratives of human life, and as open-ended sites of desire." The texts she analyzes are the De Re Rustica of Columella, the Satires of Horace, the Annals of Tacitus, and the Confessions of Saint Augustine. In order to provide historical comparison, she also includes references to a poem by Carolyn Forché, a novel by J.M. Coetzee, and two plays by Tom Stoppard.
