Readers and Writers in Ovid's Heroides by Efrossini Spentzou
Book DescriptionThis is the first book-length study to reconstruct the experiences of the abandoned heroines of the Heroides, which have been largely ignored by past criticism. Dr Spentzou seeks ways to isolate, characterize, and release the female voice and experience within Ovid's male-authored text. Building on a wide range of ancient as well as modern images and reflections on gender and writing, the book attempts to map the relationship between gendered sensitivities and experience and generic expression and choices. Dr Spentzou uses the insight gained by the boom of intertextual studies in recent Latin scholarship to go a step further and address explicitly the ideologies of intertextual studies. This is a book about readers and reading, just as much as about women and gender, and it is also an in-depth study of the intricate and heated negotiations behind the interpretative act.

Cultivating the Muse, Hardback (March 2002)» View all books by Efrossini Spentzou
A variety of critical approaches from an international cast of contributors offer an original appreciation of creativity in classical literature. Whereas previous scholarship has portrayed the Muses as religious and benign creatures, the secularized muse figures explored here in a diverse corpus of Greek and Latin poetry are involved in a series of vibrant battles for inspiration.
