Tombs of the Ancient Poets

Between Literary Reception and Material Culture

Edited by Nora Goldschmidt and Barbara Graziosi

  • The first volume to investigate the tombs of the ancient poets as sites of reception from antiquity to modernity
  • Highlights the importance of material objects in literary reception, bringing together two largely disconnected areas of study
  • Covers a range of perspectives in standalone chapters - from literary and reception-focused to archaeological and art-historical - which are brought into a productive dialogue with each other via extensive cross-referencing and a substantial Introduction to the volume in its full range
  • Includes translations of all non-English languages, ensuring accessibility to readers at all levels of familiarity with the ancient and modern foreign languages from which quotations are drawn
