A typical characteristic of the epic technique of Lucanus is the lack of god apparatus. In the last century several explanations on this phenomenon were born. Many of them do not really speak about the lack of the god apparatus, but rather about the way the author uses in this transcendent aspect of the epic narrative, rather the totally impersonal 'fatum', sometimes philosophically ('fortuna'), sometimes 'Fortuna' as a divinity instead the traditional gods. Modern theories explain the phenomenon with the novelty of Lucanus' poetic perspective. The lack of the god apparatus though is only one of those symptoms which all can be interpreted via rhetoric work methods, meeting the rules of rhetoric 'narratio'.
