"From the perspectives of present interest and future research-areas this thought-provoking collection is extremely valuable."

"For classicists wanting a new perspective on gender studies... and for those interested in ancient and modern theories of vision, it will be a resource for years to come."

"These nine essays collectively make the case for Rome as a missing link in the historical formulation of the gaze... A thought-provoking collection."

"In The Roman Gaze classicists will find sophisticated and theoretically informed discussions of a broad range of literature, art, and social norms and of the light they throw on contemporary theoretical concerns. This collection makes an excellent case for the importance of Roman material for a range of issues connected with the gaze and a similarly powerful case against letting Classical Athens stand for the ancient world."
