ROMAN LITERARY CULTURE, 2ND EDITION: From Plautus to Macrobius
Discusses the habits of Roman readers and developments in their means of access to literature, from booksellers and copyists to pirated publications and libraries. Fantham examines the issues of patronage and the utility of literature and shows how the constraints of the physical object itself--the ancient "book"--influenced the practice of both reading and writing.
