Pressestimmen

"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 "A fascinating read which should appeal to a wide variety of readers not just in the classics, but throughout the humanities." Bryn Mawr Classical Review "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 "Appealing both to a reader possibly unfamiliar with the material, but also being of much interest to fellow specialists in this field." Scholia Reviews
