Odi et amo: hating and loving simultaneously is just one of many instances in Roman love poetry of a ʻweakness of willʼ known in ancient ethics as akrasia. This contribution presents some preliminary research towards a view that Latin elegy offers a philosophically inflected meditation on this issue, and more broadly on the degree to which the individual is in charge of their emotions, decisions and, ultimately, their destiny. Tutti gli interessati sono invitati a partecipare
