Alexander Kuznetsov is a philologist at The Moscow State University. He has devoted a considerable amount of his research to the topic of time and rhythm in literary texts. His current research deals with topics in Roman calendar and chronology.
The project Roman Time in Roman Literary Space: The Common Sense Temporality deals with the patterns of temporality which operate in Roman literary texts. The project will be focused on the literature of Augustan age, because it provides a linguistically coherent corpus of texts in diverse genres. Virgil, Ovid and Horace will be the preferred object of study, but prose will not be neglected. The project will be aimed to develop a description of the structures of Latin literary language related to Roman time-space continuum. Special problems of Roman calendar and chronology will also be considered.
