Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a pleasure to read and will lead, one hopes, to renewed interest in the myth of the foundation of Rome and its central characters." Religious Studies Review

"[This] wonderfully clear narrative demonstrates the best of contempoary scholarship..." Choice

"...[a] wild and wonderful book." Times Literary Supplement

"...Wiseman packs several centuries worth of primary sources and scholarship into a delightfully written argument. Wiseman's Remus is required reading for anyone with an interest in Roman mythology, history, or literature." Cynthia Bannon, Folklore Forum

Book Description

The first historical analysis of the origins and development of the myth of the foundation legend of Rome offers important insights into the nature of pre-imperial Rome and the ways in which myths could be created and elaborated in a nonliterate society.
