Description - Ancient Greek Literary Letters by Patricia A. Rosenmeyer

The only major work of its kind on Greek epistolography, this book examines short selections of fictional letters, and excerpts from histories, epics and novels, from the second and third centuries CE; the so-called 'Golden Age' of prose epistolography. Arranged chronologically, with introductory sections for each time period, this book studies a wide range of writers, genres and literary levels, and analyzes love letters, philosophical letters, historical novels in letters, sketches of rural life, sketches of courtesan life, and comic letters among many more. Well-respected author Patricia A. Rosenmeyer has selected a highly entertaining selection, which include translation of previously inaccessible or untranslated works , and deftly opens up a neglected area of study to provide an enjoyable and central study text for students of Greek epistolography.
