Rezensionen


?Classics has a particular stake in critical thought thataddresses the problem of our (as classicists and readers)historical alienation from the texts we read.? (Classics JournalOnline, September 2009)
Fiona Macintosh, University of Oxford
"In this thought-provoking and pioneering volume, the editorshave put together a diverse collection of essays, which amplyreflect the range of work currently carried out under the umbrellaof classical reception studies. There is refreshingly no'orthodoxy': instead, we are offered a stimulating series ofquestions, problems and possible solutions, which will help toprovide much needed theoretical rigour to this emergent branch ofclassical scholarship."
Mary Beard, University of Cambridge
"A first-rate collection, with some of the most exciting andmost rigorous of modern studies in classical reception."
