Roman Readings: Roman Response to Greek Literature from Plautus to Statius and Quintilian

This volume presents closely connected articles by Elaine Fantham, which deal with Roman responses to Greek literature on three major subjects: the history and criticism of Latin poetry and rhetoric, women in Roman life and dramatic poetry and the poetic representation of children in relation to their mothers and teachers. The volume discusses among others texts by Plautus, Terence, Cicero, Quintilian, Gellius and Ovid.
