In "The Search for the Ancient Novel" Tatum brings together a distinguished group of scholars to examine every aspect of ancient Greek and Roman novelists--the recovery of their texts, their reception, ancient and modern, and their place in literary theory and history. The contributors explore subjects ranging from antiquity to the present, from the anonymous authors of "Apollonius King of Tyre" and "The Apochryphal Acts of Peter" to Tasso, Cervantes, and Rabelais, from Lucian, Heliodorus, and Petronius to Chritien de Troye and Samuel Richardson.
