Product Description


This is a thought-provoking and wide-ranging work, bringing together such diverse subjects as changing attitudes to Pompeii's erotic material and the excavations' impact on 19th-century Italy's emerging political identity. Its often-surprising insights shed new light on this most familiar of sites. (Current World Archaeology)

The editors of Pompeii in the Public Imagination have given us a stimulating and provocative collection of essays in interpretation of this ruin that changes from year to year, yet always remains the same. (Professor Eugene Dwyer, Reviews in History)
