Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This collection of 24 new essays by Classical scholars on Greek and Roman historiography and biography considers from a fresh perspective the central question of how characterisation evolves in these two major Classical genres. The volume is wide-reaching, both in the time-periods and authors considered, ranging from Herodotus to Cassius Dio, and from Cicero to Suetonius and beyond. The contributors offer close readings of individual texts and overarching engagement with questions of how and why characterisation in the ancient world develops as it does.
