Description

Achilles Tatius' Leucippe and Clitophon has long been regarded as the most controversial of the ancient Greek novels. This extended study on Achilles Tatius explores Leucippe and Clitophon in its literary and visual contexts, presenting fresh insights into the work's narrative complexities and its obsessions with the eye. The book is written for non-specialists and all Greek is translated or paraphrased. It will be of value to readers with interests in feminist literary criticism, as well as ancient novels.
