    This book consists of seventeen essays by a team of international scholars exploring aspects of the reception of literature from the earliest surviving Greek poetry to the demise of classical literature at the end of the Roman empire. Deploying fresh insights to map out lively and provocative surveys, the contributors examine all genres of the classical world--epic, lyric, tragedy, comedy. Brian Campbell is Professor of Roman History at the Queen's University of Belfast. He has written several books on the Roman Army, including The Emperor and the Roman Army 31 BC-AD , The Roman Army 31 BC-AD A Sourcebook and War and Society in Imperial Rome 31 BC - AD

    Cassius Dio (— AD), Roman History In the 1st century AD Emperor Augustus, thinking strategically, saw Rome’s corrupt morals and low birth rate as threatening the defense and sustainability of the Roman State. But c. years earlier Aristotle had been worried about the danger to the Greek State of too many children. Most of the large Roman baths were also cultural centres, built from the start with a library, a two room arrangement with one room for Greek and one for Latin texts. Libraries were filled with parchment scrolls as at Library of Pergamum and on papyrus scrolls as at Alexandria: the export of prepared writing materials was a staple of commerce.

    Tell us about your fourth pick. Zachary Mason’s The Lost Books of the Odyssey picks up the notion that even within these ancient texts, the authors are envisioning possibilities for alternate universes of text. The premise is that there are other books of The Odyssey, aside from the canoni which were lost – as so much classical literature is.   The ancient Greeks have had a massive influence on Western society. Numerous sciences and literary genres were founded by Greeks, and many of their writings have survived more or less complete. This list describes 10 of the most influential ancient Greek writers.
