9781844655625: Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses (The Senses in Antiquity)

Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged. 'Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses' presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas, sounds and sights. It offers both a fresh look at society in the ancient world and an opportunity to deepen the reading of classical literature. The book will appeal to readers in classical society and literature, philosophy and cultural history. All Greek and Latin is translated and technical matters are explained for the non-specialist. The introduction sets the ancient senses within the history of aesthetics and the subsequent essays explores the senses throughout the classical period and on to the modern reception of classical literature.

'This agenda-setting collection challenges us to look beyond the 'visual/textual' paradigm and gives us a taste of the fascinating sensual and aesthetic possibilities afforded by the other senses, individually and in concert.' --Victoria Wohl - University of Toronto
