"Rosalind Thomas explores the roles and interactions of writing and oral communication in eight readable chapters, providing both a broadly informed overview of basic issues and sensible insights of her own....The whole is dotted with valuable specific information and insights. The presentation is fluid and fluent...." Carol Thomas, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"...an excellent, obliquely angled introduction to the study of ancient Greece as a whole." James Davidson, Times Literary Supplement
"...a work of major importance. It belongs in the library of every classicist, and of every scholar who works in the theory of oral transmission and/or the development of literacy." Ex Libris
Recent theoretical debates about literacy and orality are examined and the uses of writing and oral communication explored in the first systematic examination of their social and historical significance in ancient Greece.
