Diana at Her Bath: The Women of Rome

0 Reviews
These two essays explore sexual tropes, rituals, and mores of Roman antiquity from a thoroughly modern perspective. While attentive to the historical interpretations of the mythical meeting of Diana and Actaeon, and the sexual rituals of ancient Rome, Klossowski's studies bring to the reader the affinity the author has for his subject matter.
