About the Authors
  • This is a series of innovative studies in the textual and literary criticism of Latin literature, exploring how these two branches of the discipline are mutually supportive. The contributors include many leading scholars in the field. Individual essays are devoted to Catullus, Cicero, Horace, Lucretius, Ovid, Tacitus and Virgil, and there are also essays on the Renaissance reception of Virgil and on principles of editorial practice. The collection celebrates the extraordinary contribution which Michael Reeve has made and continues to make to Latin studies.

    • Covers topics in both the textual and literary criticism of Latin literature, showing how the two broad approaches are in fact mutually supportive
    • Presents essays on Republican and Imperial Latin literature, as well as the reception of the classics
    • All significant quotations of Greek and Latin are translated
