'Anthony Miller's elegant and learned study of the imaginative uses to which the ancient Roman triumph was put in early modern England is a major contribution both to the history of the classical tradition and to the political, cultural, and literary history of a crucial period in the formation of English nationhood. Particularly enjoyable is the deft analysis of the many, and often paradoxical, metamorphoses undergone by representations of triumph in the service of the various competing ideologies and belief-systems of the period.' - Philip Hardie FBA, University Reader in Latin Literature, University of Cambridge
'...always informative and thoroughly scholarly...Miller makes persuasive connections between political culture...and literary production.' - Richard Madelaine, Sixteenth Century Journal
