About the Authors
  • This book exploits recent reevaluations of Roman religion in order to argue in favor of taking the religious dimensions of Roman literature seriously, as important cultural work in their own right. Instead of seeing Roman religious and literary activity as derivative and parasitic upon Greek originals, the book questions the romanticizing biases of classical studies, and argues for the power and creativity of the Romans in their engagements with Greek culture.

    • Books in the Roman Literature and its Contexts series have attracted attention and interest; this is a book by one of the series editors
    • A sophisticated and historically and anthropologically informed short study of Roman religion
    • Should attract interest for its subjects of myth and religion
