This book offers a study of Roman attitudes to the Greek world, showing what Romans of the governing class thought about Greeks, both past and contemporary. It considers the practical effects of Philhellenism in Rome and surveys Rome's attempts to assimilate Greek literature. Wardman discusses the faults and virtues of the Greeks through Roman eyes; Roman views on use of the Greek language and Greek art; Roman readings of Homer; interpretations of Greek history and historians; evaluations of Greek rhetorical theory; and the problems they faced in turning Greek philosophy into Latin. The book ranges from the age of Cicero to the second century AD and provides an overall, thematically arranged survey. It is designed to be useful to all students of Greek and Roman civilisation and appeal to all who are interested in the reception of Hellenism. Quotations are in translation, so it is readily accessible to those who do not read the ancient languages.
