More About the Author

Professor of Latin at University College London, my research interests include sexuality, gender and desire in Roman love poetry and the reception of ancient Rome. After some years investigating the place of Julius Caesar in western culture, I am currently pursuing a collaborative research project on Ancient Civilizations in Silent Cinema.

My research profile can be found on the UCL website at www.ucl.ac.uk/classics/

Product Description

Review

..."Wyke treats the cinematic representation of the ancient world with the utmost seriousness and succeeds in developing a rigorous methodology for dealing with classical history on celluloid."-Pheonix, 1999 "This fascinating book analyzing films, many of them long forgotten, about ancient Rome should be welcomed by both classicists and those interested in the cinema and its historical setting... Wyke's book is an excellent addition to any library covering film studies, the classical tradition, culture and gender studies. Maria Wyke has done some fine and entertaining work."-Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 9.4 (1998)
