9781444349863: Sexuality in Greek and Roman Culture
Revue de presse :

What has long been badly needed is a comprehensive survey that examines Greco–Roman sexuality, non–judgementally, in its own cultural context. Marilyn Skinner s Sexuality in Greek and Roman Culture does just that Non–ideological, its vast scholarship distilled in elegant prose for the general reader, sensible in its judgements, and equipped with a formidable bibliography, this splendid book replaces all earlier works on the subject for those in search of knowledge rather than confirmation of their prejudices. Times Literary Supplement (Books of the Year)

"This book is not only an overview of sexuality but also an introduction to all forms of interpersonal relations, as Skinner uses the social and political structures of the time to account for differing notions of sexuality across time periods As a general introduction to the topic this work is highly successful in that it gives a thorough overview of current literature while encouraging further reading and discussion this is a most successful addition to the work on ancient sexuality and comes at a time when sexuality is becoming such a popular research topic. Scholia: Studies in Classical Antiquity

"More than twenty years of researching and teaching sex and gender in antiquity, on both Greek and Roman topics, makes Marilyn Skinner an ideal candidate to write the first textbook–style survey of the subject ... I already look forward to the possibility of future editions." Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Elegantly written and skillfully argued, Sexuality in Greek and Roman Culture brilliantly conveys the complexity of ancient attitudes towards sexuality and gender and the modern debates they have engendered. This book is comprehensive yet concise, theoretically sophisticated and yet accessible for an undergraduate reader. Laura McClure, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"For several reasons this book may be considered a masterpiece ... The book is eminently readable, with the occasional good sense of humour. Moreover it is an outstanding example of integrated scholarship, aptly covering literary, epigraphical and papyrological source material as well as iconographical evidence ... and comparitive material with reference to contemporary issues." Les Etudes Classiques

Written in a clear, engaging style that is enlivened with many touches of wit and humour, and, in addition, extremely well organized a great challenge given the complexity of the subject.
Beert Verstraete
Department of Classics
Acadia University

A cultural history of ancient sexuality that is necessary reading for classicists wanting an introduction to this relatively new field, but also of interest to specialists outside classics because of her concern to demonstrate how constructions of ancient sexuality are similar to, yet different from, modern western conceptions of sex and gender.
Journal of the Classical Association of Canada

Quatrième de couverture :

Skinner s revised and expanded second editionincreases the chief pleasure of her first to see a truescholar at work, formidably informed. Her scope of eruditionembraces all manner of ancient testimony, from Greek romances togravestones.

Micaela Janan, Duke University

Konstantinos P. Nikoloutsos, Saint Joseph′sUniversity 

 

A breathtaking synthesis of cutting edge research, thissuperb second edition of Skinner′s magisterial overview of ancientsexuality combines sophistication with accessibility and remains anindispensable resource for students, teachers, andscholars.

Yurie Hong, Gustavus Adolphus College

 

 

This second edition of the authoritative guide to gender andsexuality in ancient Greece and Rome has been fully revised,augmented, and enhanced for greater student utility. New featuresinclude a separate glossary, focused discussion prompts, andsuggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. Thetext remains the leading survey of a hugely diverse field thatencompasses everything from outrageous bawdry to idealizedpederasty. Engaging, accessible, and laced with humor, thenarrative begins with the Homeric era and now extends to the adventof Christianity as it eclipsed paganism across Europe andrecalibrated attitudes to sexuality and gender.

Drawing on literary, artistic, and archaeological evidence, aswell as on scholarly sources, the new edition introduces a numberof additional topics, including fuller theoretical analysis of keyconcepts such as sex, gender, and sexuality; cultural and religiousexchanges between Greeks and Egyptians; the mystique of Alexanderthe Great; and an entire chapter on the living conditions ofnon–elite Romans. The text combines fine cultural detail with abreadth of perspective, prompting readers to contrast ancient normsof sexual behavior with those of today, and contextualizes thelongstanding academic disputes over ancient sexuality. Strikinglyrelevant to our own understanding of the interplay between socialinstitutions and personal sexual conduct, this new edition, likeits forerunner, will be greatly valued by general and academicreaders alike.
