Sinopsis:

The aim of this work is to recover classical Roman assumptions about women on the basis of the surviving linguistic data. Parallel to her study of the connotation of the major Latin words for women, the author provides an examination of how Roman authors use the various words for men. The resulting analysis throws light not only on Roman gender vocabulary but also on Roman cultural perceptions of class, moral worth and nationality. Understanding the connotative range of gender terms such as "homo", "vir", "femina", and "mulier" also reveals the value judgements made by ancient authors on male and female behaviour and can even be applied as a tool of historical analysis.

Críticas: 'L'Hoir has written a book of importance to classicists in philology, history, rhetoric and women's studies. Her extensive survey of gender terminology in all major Roman prose writers demonstrates a remarkable consistency over two and a half centuries of Latin literature.' Erich S. Gruen, 1992. '...a solid and useful work of scholarship...' Jonathan Walters, The Classical Review, 1994. 'C'est une etude d'une incontestable qualite...' J. Hellegouarch'h, Latomus, 1995.
