MEDIA REVIEWS

"Wilcox describes a 'logic of practice' for Roman letter-writing, reveals the contests and strategies at play in Cicero's exchanges with his friends, and demonstrates that Seneca created his new genre of 'moral letters' through a brilliant short-circuiting of the forms and values of the epistolary system."--James Ker, author of "The Death of Seneca"


"The letter collections of Cicero and Seneca have rarely been considered in concert, a consideration crucial to furthering our understanding of ancient epistolography, epistolarity, and ancient literary gift-giving as a whole. Wilcox's focus on letters as a sort of gift is an important, smart, and valuable one."--Sarah Culpepper Stroup, University of Washington
