9780859896627: Myth, History and Culture in Republican Rome: Studies in Honour of T.P. Wiseman (CLASSICAL STUDIES AND ANCIENT HISTORY)

In this collection of essays, an international team of outstanding scholars engage with the ideas and methods of Professor Peter Wiseman's past and present work. They provide a sustained response to the work of one of the most widely respected Roman historians of this generation. The contributions range over myth (Corialanus and Remus), the interplay between historiography, literature and myth-making (on Cleopatra, for instance), and art and story-telling at Boscoreale. They explore Roman drama (Pacuvius) and links between drama and Virgil's Aeneid; they discuss Catullus in Bithynia and Cicero on Greek and Roman culture. Professor Wiseman has been at the forefront of innovative research in Roman history, historiography, literature in context, drama and myth, for many years. His work is marked by the combination of a powerful historical imagination with an acute sense of the limitations of our knowledge and of the need to negotiate with the complexity of our sources.

Review:


"Some of these essays are ... quite radical in their implications. Many are provocative. All are valuable. It is good to be reminded that so many different roads can lead us back to the Romans."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"The quality of these essays ... eloquent testimony to what TPW has done to enliven and invigorate Roman studies over the last thirty years."--Scripta Classica Israelica


"This is a delightful and important book... The book is handsomely produced and bound. The editors have done a splendid job... It should, therefore, be read by any JACT member who genuinely cares about Roman studies. Another ideal gift."--Joint Association of Classical Teachers


"We have here thirteen solid and stimulating papers from some of the brightest stars in the firmament of Roman studies, as well as an informative introduction by the editors... The editors, both highly respected scholars at Exeter, have done their work carefully, and the book is handsomely produced, with a striking reproduction of a detail from a fourth century B.C. bronze cista on its cover, clear illustrations and maps, and helpful indices. The content, however, is the most important thing; the individual essays run the gamut of Roman studies from the beginning to the end of the republican period... Every college and university library should own it, and everyone interested in Roman history, myth, and culture would profit from reading it.--New England Classical Journal
