The present paper examines the crucial passages in Lucanus, Valerius Flaccus, Statius and Sily concerning suicide. Lucanus presents a fanatical eulogy of suicide, Valerius Flaccus a rather calculated approach which is guided by almost philosophical considerations resembling those given by the philosopher Seneca, Statius focuses on the problem of self determination and tyranny. Sily’s account of the Saguntine suicide combines and modifies different elements of the literary tradition, which sometimes makes it difficult to ascertain the value judgement his narrative is meant to convey to his readers.

In 1640 Thomas May publishes his Supplementum Lucani in hexameters. His Continuation of Lucan's Historicall Poem till the Death of Iulius Caesar in blank verse has already appeared in 1630 and - in a second version - in 1633. As republican the author is fond of M. Porcius Cato Uticensis, depicting Caesar's opponent as a stoic and wise man and a timeless symbol of liberty. May's Supplementum was read as integral part of Lucan's Bellum Civile up to the 18th century, when Joseph Addison and Johann Christoph Gottsched wrote their Cato-plays.

Aus individualitätsgeschichtlicher Sicht liefert uns die Geschichte der Moderne eine Erfahrung, wonach das konstitutive Merkmal des Individuums nicht mehr die Identität, sondern viel Eher die Inadäquanz ist. Dieses Ereignis zeigt sich in der ungarischen Epik wahrscheinlich in Krúdys Texten am besten, in denen die Verschiebungen zwischen den früheren und späteren Texten diejenige Formen und Strategien bezeugen, die zur Voraussetzung der Ausbildung und der Aneignung der Vergangenheit und damit der Persönlichkeit werden.
