By examining the resonances of the Jama/’fata structure within the Aeneid I have indicated how its dynamics offered insights not only into the psychology of the gods and mortals but also into the nature of storytelling. I wish to focus on questions of narrative in this chapter by looking more closely at recent theories of intertextuality which highlight how the story, the fama, of the Aeneid insinuates itself into other stories. These theories reveal the preoccupations of intellectuals working in twentieth-century France, preoccupations which are built into the very structure of many works where Virgil figures, as we shall see.
