Reviews

'Cyrino has gathered 16 original and entertaining essays by leading international film scholars and classicists exploring how images of a dissolute Rome, as well as of alternative sexualities (especially homoerotic) in ancient Greece, have influenced modern films and TV series . . .

Upper-level undergraduates and above.' - CHOICE
