about

Donald Russell, Emeritus Professor of Classical Literature at Oxford University, has been a leading figure in several fields of classical scholarship over the last few decades. The present volume collects essays written in his honour by scholars who have worked closely with him. The essaysfall into three sections, corresponding to Donald Russell's main work: Latin literature, Greek Imperial Literature, and Ancient Literary Criticism. They are unified by two of Russell's own pervasive concerns: Ethics, the concern of classical literature with moral conduct, and Rhetoric, thetechniques of effective persuasion.
Doreen C. Innes is at St Hilda's College, Oxford. Harry Hine is at University of St Andrews.
