"Due to the wide range of subject matter, nearly every serious fan of ancient Rome will find something that piques their interest, if not something they wish to share with their students. The clear prose of all the authors-there is no getting bogged down in excessive film criticism jargon-and the copious notes make this collection useful on its own or as a springboard for further investigations." (The Classical Outlook, Spring 2009)“The superb scholarship that runs through these pages entertains and inspires. In addition to its value to classics students and scholars, this book is a major contribution to the growing literature in television and film studies.”
Robert J. Burgoyne, Wayne State University and author of The Hollywood Historical Film
“Monica Cyrino has put together a wonderful collection of short, well-focused essays, which offer the non-specialist reader a well-argued dialogue between the historical data – archaeological as well as literary – and the artistic, social, and political agenda implicit in the choices of the series’ creators. Running through all the essays is a provocative meditation on the contemporary constructions of ancient Rome.”
Peter Rose, Miami University
