"The high scholarly level of the informative essays and the carefully selected illustrations provide a rare compendium of sources and a sophisticated yet accessible comment on topics today's students hunger to know but, with rare exceptions, are not served as nutritious a course as this banquet of delights offers."--Paul B. Harvey, Pennsylvania State University "An excellent collection of essays on eroticism which fulfills a significant gap....Useful for any classicist in literature, art, sociology, and classical culture."--Clifford Braerlmas, St. John Fisher College "A fine, stimulating, and challenging collection. A superb compliment to other current works on sexuality in the ancient world."--James A. Francis, Rollins College "As a set these papers make a substantial contribution to classical studies, bringing to bear a complex feminist perspective in an informed, clear, compelling way. This is very much needed, and should have considerable appeal to classicists, feminists, critics and students, and to anyone interested in antiquity and sexuality."--David Konstan, Brown University "The authors add significantly to the understanding of sexuality in Greece and Rome by applying feminist theory, among others, to their analyses. The volume is remarkable in part for its feminist authorship....But it is also remarkable for the inclusion of material previously unavailable to the nonclassicist, for the variety and range of interpretations, and for the discussions of literary texts side by side with visual art....The 13 contributors represent some of the most recent and provocative work in classical scholarship to date. The handy timeline will help the general reader; the bibliography is particularly useful for the general reader and specialist alike."--Choice "Most of the papers contain solid scholarship and make an important contribution to understanding classical social and cultural history."--Bowling Green Daily News "This collection shows that imaginative scholarship can still yield fresh insights."--American Historical Review "One of the very few large-scale applications of feminist theory to Greco-Roman antiquity."--Richlin, XI "Well-produced...the authors should be congratulated for tackling the issues rigorously and without straitjacketing their responses."--The Historian
