    DescriptionThe Florida, an anthology of 23 orations that Apuleius of Madauros delivered primarily in Carthage during the 160's A.D., offers a rich store of evidence about epideictic rhetoric, Middle Platonism, and the civic and intellectual life of the North African provincial metropolis. In addition to locating the work in its historical and cultural context, this commentary investigates Apuleius' remarkable language and style.

    Review quote
    "Das Buch, das durch ausgezeichnete Indices auch einer gezielten Befragung uber Details leicht zuganglich ist, ist rundum gelungen und ein grosser Schritt in der Forschung zur zweiten Sophistik - zur kaiserzeitlichen lateinischen Literatur und Rhetorik uberhaupt."Gernot Krapinger in: Museum Helveticum 2006 "This volume contains much diligent learning and interpretation."Stephen J. Harrison in: www.sehepunkte.de 11/2006 "In this book Lee makes a thoughtful and scrupulously thorough contrubution to Apuleian studies. [...]it is an excellent piece of scholarship and will hold its value for some years to come."John Hilton in: Scholia Reviews 5/2005
