Product description

Review

"The classic, groundbreaking account of women’s lives in Greece and Rome… the first general treatment of women in the ancient world to reflect the critical insights of modern feminism" (Mary Beard)

"Deeply fascinating ... from Pandora to the Lemnian women who slaughtered their husbands for saying they stank, from Solon's state-controlled brothels to the scabrous writing of Juvenal and the transvestite peculariaties of Spartan marriages ... attitudes and anomalies are explored which remain valid paradigms to this day" (Observer)

"From Pandora to the Lemnian women who slaughtered their husbands for saying they stank, from Solon's state-controlled brothels, the scabrous writing of Juvenal, the transvestite peculiarities of Spartan marriage...attitudes and anomalies are explored which remain valid paradigms to this day... A scholarly and deeply fascinating study" (Christopher Wordsworth Observer)

"Professor Pomeroy's standpoint is clearly that of a reasoned and enlightened sympathy with women's aspirations. Scholars will find the book indispensable and readers will find it both instructive and enjoyable" (Hugh Lloyd-Jones) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
