Antonine Literature

This volume gathers together for the first time essays on the intellectual and literary world of both the Greek and Latin Antonines. The contributors provide a broad range of topics including Plutarch's Lives (C.B.R. Pelling), Lucian's Prologues (H.-G. Nesselrath), Aristides' Hymns (D.A. Russell), Apuleius's Cupid and Psyche (E.J. Kenney), Greek poetry of the period (E.L. Bowie), the definition of the Second Sophistic (G. Anderson), and the influence of Plato's Phaedrus (M.B. Trapp). Russell also provides an introductory essay addressing the relationship between the two literary languages, and a full bibliography and table of dates.
