Ancient Rome and Victorian Masculinity.
Oxford University Press, 2018. 272p. Hardback. Series: Classical Presences. Eastlake's interpretation of Marius the Epicurean, both as a novel and as an intervention into Victorian debates on masculinity, is exemplary; she makes this structurally difficult historical novel relevant to its time and accessible to our own. . . . This is a well-researched, well written, and historically sensitive book. It refuses to fix a single meaning of the Roman world for the Victorians, instead cultivating multiple understandings of both Roman antiquity and Victorian masculinity, as well as their many intersections James Campbell, University of Central Florida, English LIterature in Transition |a 13/01/2020 (Publisher's information).
