Overview

A Festschrift for Jorgen Mejer comprising thirty-four articles on Greco-Roman antiquity and its visions of life. These are specialised papers, primarily focusing on extracts from specific Greek or Latin texts which are rarely translated. In most cases, the contributors search the texts for what they reveal about classical attitudes towards relationships, including those between author and audience, between lovers, among families, between philosophers and their public, and between classical scholars and antiquity. Plato, Aristotle, Plutarch and Ovid are among the authors and thinkers discussed. Papers in English, French and German.
