    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 42.95

    Recent attacks on contemporary art have portrayed the erotic content of works by Robert Mapplethorpe and others as if it were a deviation from the Western artistic tradition.

  • The Greek Anthology Book XVIIby Greg Delanty

    Carcanet 2013; US$ 12.99

    The Greek Anthology is a treasure of the ancient world, sixteen books of poems, amatory, religious, elegiac, and satirical, written over the course of more than a millennium.

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00

    This is the first modern commentary devoted exclusively to the epigrams of Lucillius, a prolific Neronian poet who, in spite of being one of the most significant representatives of the Greek satirical epigram, has primarily been studied not for his own value, but for the influence he had on Martial. About 140 epigrams of his survive, mostly in book... more...

  • Beyond the Second Sophisticby Tim Whitmarsh

    University of California Press 2013; US$ 49.95

    The "Second Sophistic" traditionally refers to a period at the height of the Roman Empire’s power that witnessed a flourishing of Greek rhetoric and oratory, and since the 19th century it has often been viewed as a defense of Hellenic civilization against the domination of Rome.
