Roman Error

Classical Reception and the Problem of Rome's Flaws

Edited by Basil Dufallo

Classical Presences

  • Presents a less frequently examined view of Roman error, exploring ways in which it has inspired creativity and innovation, rather than just denunciation
  • Examines a range of examples from history, philosophy, literature, psychoanalysis, and art history, from antiquity to the present, providing the reader with a broad overview of the topic
  • Theorizes pertinent aspects of reception studies, opening up avenues for scholarly exploration and research beyond the examples and specific subject matter discussed
