About the book:
Examining the profusion of ways in which the arts, culture, and thought of Greece and Rome have been transmitted, interpreted, adapted and used, "A Companion to Classical Receptions" explores the impact of this phenomenon on both ancient and later societies. The book provides a comprehensive introduction and overview of classical reception - the interpretation of classical art, culture, and thought in later centuries, and the fastest growing area in classics; 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; and, 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.
