Classical Presences

  • Analyses the work of a broad range of female authors across a variety of genres, from memoir, poetry, and novels to children's literature and rap music
  • Draws on an unusually wide geographical scope to facilitate comparisons between works in different languages and highlight a transnational trend of opening up the field and the canon
  • Concludes with a reflective piece by Emily Wilson on her new translation of the Odyssey
