POWER, T.G., and R.K. GIBSON, (eds.),
Suetonius the Biographer. Studies in Roman Lives.
Oxford University Press, 2018. 1st paperback ed. XII,338p. Paperback. Tristan Power and Roy Gibson, the editors of this new collection of thirteen lively essays, Suetonius the Biographer, seek to put the author in the spotlight by directing the critical focus squarely back to his craft as a biographer. By meeting Suetonius on his own terms, the contributors aim to clarify how and why he is an innovative writer still worth reading today . . . as this stimulating collection of essays demonstrates, looking below the surface of Suetonius's text into the inner workings of the author's mind is richly rewarding.
