This book consists of nine essays by six contributors exploring aspects of literature from the beginning of the Roman empire to the end of the classical era. The theme drawing the essays together is that appreciation of Roman literature can be informed and influenced by attending to the 'receivers' of the literature, and by consideration of what it was originally appreciated for.
