Editorial Reviews


'This work performs a valuable service for those interested in the relationship between earlier and later Greek novels.' - Jonathan Walters, Classics Ireland

'The book is well worth reading, especially by Western medievalists who are not always aware of literary development at the other end of the Mediterranean in the generation preceding Chretien de Troyes.' - Medium Aevum

'Dreams and Suicides is an interesting book ... It will give specialists on the ancient novel plenty to think about, and raise awareness of and interest in the ancient Greek novel's Byzantine successors.' - John Birchall, Scholia Reviews
