Book Description:
This important collection of essays both contributes to the expanding field of classical reception studies and seeks to extend it. Focusing on nineteenth and twentieth century Britain, it looks at a range of different genres (epic, novel, lyric, tragedy, political pamphlet). Within the published texts considered, the usual range of genres dealt with elsewhere is extended by chapters on books for children, and those in which childhood and memories of childhood are informed by antiquity; and also by a multi genre case study of a highly unusual subject, Spartacus. Remaking the Classics also goes beyond books to dramatic performance, and beyond the theatre to radio a medium of enormous power and influence from the 1920s to the 1960s, whose role in the reception of classics is largely unexplored. Contributors: Lorna Hardwick, Stephen Harrison, Ruth Hazel, Leanne Hunnings, Sheila Murnaghan, Deborah Roberts, Christopher Stray, Elizabeth Vandiver, Amanda Wrigley.
