This is a book that needed to be written in answer to a deep gap in our resources on Latin literature...we owe Fantham much gratitude for having the energy and wisdom to undertake this demanding and original project. Every Latinist should study her book. The book remains thoroughly absorbing from the account of late republican literary culture through the imperial, and especially the Neronian, periods, and continues to instruct and delight concerning cultural decline in the age of the Antonines.

Review quote

This is a book that needed to be written in answer to a deep gap in our resources on Latin literature... we owe Fantham much gratitude for having the energy and wisdom to undertake this demanding and original project. Every Latinist should study her book. -- William S. Anderson American Journal of Philology The book remains thoroughly absorbing from the account of late republican literary culture through the imperial, and especially the Neronian, periods, and continues to instruct and delight concerning cultural decline in the age of the Antonines. -- Robert P. Sonkowsky Phi Beta Kappa Key Reporter Roman Literary Culture is an important work, full of learning, which serves simultaneously to deepen our appreciation of Latin literature in its social context, to provoke further exploration of the questions the author raises, and to continue debate concerning certain of the answers. -- Jeri Blair DeBrohun New England Classical Journal
