Editorial Reviews

Review


"Wyke's essays...powerfully demonstrated the artificiality of the elegiac world, its women in particular. Wyke's key insight about love elegy is that...the elegiac woman has everything to do with the construction of a provocative male persona, and very little to do with women per se."--Times Literary Supplement


"The material that Wyke has unearthed...is an extraordinary mixture of kitsch, glamour and classically inspired wit."--Mary Beard, London Review of Books


"It is impossible to represent the complexity and subtleties of Wyke's arguments in a short review, and that is the reason to read her book.... The Roman Mistress is a useful read for anyone who wishes to understand the feminist perspective on Roman elegy.... Wyke's book is essential reading for those who wish to learn how the Classics have been adapted for twentieth and twenty-first century audiences."--New England Classical Journal
