  • Accompanied by extensive annotations and translations
  • A critical introduction presents an overview of Pater's studies of ancient Greek myth and art, their intellectual contexts, critical reception, and influence
  • Includes a chronology of Pater's life; a history of the essays' publication; and an appendix listing all of the key allusions to ancient Greek art and literature in the volume
  • Textual variants reveal to readers, for the first time, the ways in which Pater revised his text, and the patterns of his creative editorial decisions
