This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "This is reception criticism at its best . Caesar does not invite but rather demands reaction and reflection, a demand admirably met in this collection. Important, influential, and timely deployments of Caesar's legacy are creatively analyzed here, in essays none of which (I am pleased to say) is afraid of speaking its mind." -W. Jeffrey Tatum, Florida State University "An exciting collection of papers by a truly international team of scholars. This richly illustrated and documented volume explores the significance of Caesar's memory in the discourses of art, literature, nationalism, and empire." -Christina S. Kraus , Yale University "There is a remarkable diversity of discipline and methodology - not to mention nationality - on display here, and it reflects well on (Wykes') choice of contributors and unintrusive editorial style." -Llewelyn Morgan, Brasenose College, Oxford.

From the Back Cover: Julius Caesar is not only the most famous Roman of them all. He has also been surprisingly relevant in many different periods, for many different societies and people. Edited by a leading expert on the reception of ancient Rome, this interdisciplinary volume examines Caesar’s role in Western culture across a wide chronological range and diverse media.


Ranging over the fields of religious, military, and political history, archaeology, architecture and urban planning, the visual arts, and literary, film, theatre and cultural studies, contributors examine the Caesars of Italy, France, Germany, Britain, and the United States. Their objects of analysis extend from Caesar’s own commentaries on the Gallic wars composed in the 50s bce through Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, on to images of Caesar in twentieth-century Fascist Italy’s popular culture right up to contemporary cinema’s Caesar and twenty-first century debates about American empire.
