Item Description...
Greek Literature and the Roman Empire uses up-to-date literary and cultural theory to explore the phenomenal rise of interest in literary writing in Greece under the Roman Empire. Greek identity cannot be properly understood without appreciating the brilliant sophistication of the writers of the period, whose texts must be considered in the historical and cultural context of the battles for identity that raged under the vast, multicultural Roman Empire.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Modern Philhellenism justified  Apr 5, 2005
Whitmarsh writes with verve and sophistication and makes strikingly original points in this important book. This book both testifies to and will serve to enhance the recent revival in second sophistic studies.

There is an overwhelming focus in the book on Dio Chrysostom but space is found for interesting observations on other authors, particularly Philostratus. Most importantly, the exploration of how Greek writers themselves negotiated Greekness as a cultural force under Roman domination is undertaken. This, if anything, is reflective of the way contemporary scholarship is moving. Goldhill's edited collection 'Being Greek under Rome' is adequate testimony to this.

Overall, this is a must read text for anyone seeking to deepen their readings of Greek literature of the Second and Third centuries. Whitmarsh immerses his reader in the culture of the period and draws attention to the sophistication of his chosen authors' approach. Recommended highly.
