'... monumental ...' Niklas Holzberg, Classical World
'This monumental tome does more than merely distil and deliver insights into the workings of Fama; it takes the reader on a gripping journey through the highways and byways of her literary (and eventually artistic) representation.' Jane Heath, The Expository Times
'Impressive for the breadth of its coverage of so many authors and works across so many literary epochs, this study of representations of Fama in the Western tradition nevertheless combines that vastness of scale with Hardie's characteristic acuity as a close reader of text (text that extends in this case far beyond the Greco-Roman canon). The book is also beautifully produced, with ample margins, thirty-seven illustrations, thirty-six pages of bibliography and thorough indices of passages discussed and of general subjects.' Gareth Williams, The Journal of Roman Studies
