'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
'Previous forays into a sensory approach to the Classical world have been somewhat disparate, and an entire volume on the topic is to be welcomed… The thirteen chapters in this volume range widely from Homer to Quintilian, and flirt with all of the five senses as recognised in a modern western sensorium (vision, hearing, touch, taste and olfaction), individually and in a more multisensory manner.' --Digressus: The Internet Journal for the Classical World
