  • The Women of Pliny's Lettersby Jo-Ann Shelton

    This study of Philostratus , first published in 1986, presents the Greek biographer?s treatment of both sophists and holy men in the social and intellectual life of the early Roman Empire, which also displays his own distinctive literary personality as a superficial dilettante and an engrossing snob. Through him we gain a glimpse of the rhetorical... more...
