The representation of the infernal landscape is important in Claudian’s De raptu Proserpinae and in his In Rufinum as well. In the first poem, the underworld is described when it paradoxically joins with the living world: the ambiguity of its features reflects some sort of overlapping between the two worlds, a confusion which is caused by an event destined to change the cosmic order forever. In the In Rufinum, the close link between the underworld and the protagonist, nursed by the Fury Megaera, finds its ultimate expression at the end of the invective: Rufinus’ descent to Tartarus after his death and his punishment are functional to emphasize the demonic nature of the Praetorian prefect, incarnation of the evil itself.
