Rezensionen

-Llewelyn Morgan, Brasenose College, Oxford
"This is reception criticism at its best ... Caesar doesnot invite but rather demands reaction and reflection, a demandadmirably met in this collection. Important, influential, andtimely deployments of Caesar's legacy are creatively analyzedhere, in essays none of which (I am pleased to say) is afraid ofspeaking its mind." W. Jeffrey Tatum, Florida State University <!--end--> "An exciting collection of papers by a truly internationalteam of scholars. This richly illustrated and documented volumeexplores the significance of Caesar's memory in thediscourses of art, literature, nationalism, andempire." Christina S. Kraus, Yale University "A fascinating read which should appeal to a wide variety ofreaders not just in the classics, but throughout thehumanities." Bryn Mawr Classical Review "There is a remarkable diversity of discipline and methodology- not to mention nationality - on display here, and itreflects well on (Wykes') choice of contributors andunintrusive editorial style."
