About this title

Synopsis:

This companion addresses a topic of continuing contemporary relevance, both cultural and literary. * Offers both a wide-ranging exploration of the classical novel of antiquity and a wealth of close literary analysis * Brings together the most up-to-date international scholarship on the ancient novel, including fresh new academic voices * Includes focused chapters on individual classical authors, such as Petronius, Xenophon and Apuleius, as well as a wide-ranging thematic analysis * Addresses perplexing questions concerning authorial expression and readership of the ancient novel form * Provides an accomplished introduction to a genre with a rising profile

Review:

"It offers a nice mixture of new discussions, including some that will be useful for students and the uninitiated, some that will provoke further research, and a number that will stand as important contributions to the field in their own right." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 19 June 2015)

"Ending with a chapter looking at the influence of the ancient novel on modern film, the Companionforms a full circle in its assessment of forms of entertainment, while also demonstrating, in spite of its apparent rarity, that the ancient novel continues to exert a strong influence on modern storytellers, their means of, and inspirations for, storytelling." (Reference Reviews, 1 December 2014
