Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since 1945, the innovative approaches of a group of French scholars have profoundly altered the study of classical antiquity. Drawing on work in anthropology, religion, psychology, philology, and the new history, Antiquities offers major critical texts that have transformed the field of classics in the last half century.<P>With seminal essays by Louis Gernet, Jean-Pierre Vernant, Pierre Vidal-Naquet, Nicole Loraux, Marcel Detienne, and their colleagues (many newly translated for this volume), Antiquities provides a rich perspective on society, politics, myth, gender, literary genre, and everyday life in the ancient world. An introduction and extensive notes explore the impact of a range of disciplines on these influential classicists' thinking.

Book News Annotation:

The editors (three are professors of classics, the fourth teaches rhetoric) have selected 42 excerpts of French writing on the classics that exemplify traditional, innovative, and very innovative approaches to the study of classical antiquity. The writers they've chosen include: Jean-Pierre Vernant, Jean Bollack, Nicole Loraux, Louis Gernet, Michel Lejeune, Jean Irigoin, Philippe Rousseau, Charles Malamoud, and Emile Benveniste. Topics range from narrative in the works of Homer and the social diversity of beliefs to social symbolism in Greco-Italic cults and "the spicy side of structuralism." With an introduction and short notes preceding each selection, this is a useful reader for the advanced undergraduate or graduate classroom.
