Exploring the significance of Rome from the late eighteenth century to 1945, scholars from several disciplines, including English literature and history of art as well as classics, discuss a wide range of images and texts, from statues of Napoleon to Freud's dream analysis. Rome's astonishing range of meanings has made it a fertile paradigm for making sense of--and also for problematizing--history, politics, identity, memory and desire.
