Readership: Scholars and postgraduate students interested in the influence of Latin and Greek on British literature and culture since the Renaissance, and in the ways in which interests and ideas are mediated through language.
Kenneth Haynes, Assistant Professor, Department of Comparative Literature, Brown University.
"This is a valuable book for students on literature courses that combine Classics with English or a modern language. It is full of interesting examples which open up new areas of investigation. It is also of value to Anglophone educators in the ancient languages as it will enable them to point up the influences of Latin and Greek on English. This is an inexpensive paperback edition (with corrections) of the original publication of 2003." - John Bulwer, Bryn Mawr Reviews
"I've learned a lot from it and enjoyed the experience of reading it. If this is Professor Haynes's 'initial survey' of his field, I look forward with eager expectation to his future, fuller-length studies." - Essays in Criticism
