Robert Graves and the Classical Tradition, Hardback Book

Robert Graves and the Classical Tradition Hardback

Edited by A. G. G. (Honorary Research Fellow, University of St. Andrews) Gibson

Part of the Classical Presences series

Description

The poet Robert Graves' use of material from classical sources has been contentious to scholars for many years, with a number of classicists baulking at his interpretation of myth and his novelization of history, and questioning its academic value.

This collection of essays provides the latest scholarship on Graves' historical fiction (for example in I, Claudius and Count Belisarius) and his use of mythical figures in his poetry, as well as an examination of his controversial retelling of the Greek Myths.

The essays explore Graves' unique perspective and expand our understanding of his works within their original context, while at the same time considering their relevance in how we comprehend the ancientworld.
