  • Brings together 34 essays by an international group of contributors focused on ancient and modern reception concepts and practices
  • Combines close readings of key receptions with wider contextualization and discussion
  • Explores the impact of Greek and Roman culture worldwide, including crucial new areas in Arabic literature, South African drama, the history of photography, and contemporary ethics
