From the Publisher"Classics has a particular stake in critical thought that addresses the problem of our (as classicists and readers) historical alienation from the texts we read." (Classics Journal Online, September 2009)
"In this thought-provoking and pioneering volume, the editors have put together a diverse collection of essays, which amply reflect the range of work currently carried out under the umbrella of classical reception studies. There is refreshingly no 'orthodoxy': instead, we are offered a stimulating series of questions, problems and possible solutions, which will help to provide much needed theoretical rigour to this emergent branch of classical scholarship."
Fiona Macintosh, University of Oxford
"A first-rate collection, with some of the most exciting and most rigorous of modern studies in classical reception."
Mary Beard, University of Cambridge
"[A] landmark collection ... The volume as a whole offers readers an enriched theoretical understanding of reception and its uses."
"This body of work is not just a coordinated foray into someone else's territory; students of classical reception are writing a collective autobiography and developing a new charter for our discipline."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review
