About the Author

Fiona Cox is currently Lecturer in French at the University of Exeter, where her research interests include classical reception, modern French literature, and contemporary women's writing.


A bibliography (especially rich) and index round out a success for Cox and Oxford University Press, a book that should be on the shelf of every Virgilian, indeed every lover of evocative verse and its reception by gifted artists. * Lee Fratantuono, Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
Coxs impressive work, with its catchy but accurate title, opens an exciting new perspective upon Virgil and Latin literature generally. * Theodore Ziolkowski, Translation and Literature *
an accessible and enjoyable read ... an indispensible reference point for classical allusions in contemporary women's fiction. * Holly Ranger, Rosetta *
