How do we get from the polis to the police? Or from Odysseus sirens to an ambulance?

In this volume, some five hundred articles by scholars investigate the afterlife of this rich heritage in the fields of literature, philosophy, art, architecture, history, politics, religion, and science.

The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature by David Hopkins (Editor); Charles Martindale (Editor)
Publication Date: 2012-12-12
The Oxford History of Classical Reception (OHCREL) volumes investigate ways in which literary texts of the classical world have been read and refashioned by English writers. OHCREL endeavours to interrogate conventional assumptions about literary "periods", the processes of canon-formation, and the relations between literary and non-literary discourse. It explores in detail the ways in which English writers' engagement with classical literature casts as much light on the classical originals as it does on the English writers' own cultural context.
The four volumes currently available cover 800 CE-1880 CE..
