Promotional Information

An important and fascinating book. The time is right for a work that interweaves Augustan history, literature, and art, and Karl Galinsky is one of the very few scholars who has enough expertise in all three areas to do this successfully ... In sum, Augustan Culture is a book that makes the reader think and will help shape Augustan studies for the rest of the decade and well beyond. -- Diana E. E. Kleiner, Yale University

About the Author

Karl Galinsky is the Floyd Cailloux Centennial Professor of Classics at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of many books including Classical and Modern Interactions: Postmodern Architecture, Multiculturalism, Decline, and Other Issues; Ovid's Metamorphoses; and Aeneas, Sicily, and Rome (Princeton).


"A thought provoking study that complements and integrates the fruits of many significant studies on individual elements of this major international ancient culture."--Choice
