Editorial Reviews

"Michael Psellos has been a neglected gem—until now. This authoritative selection of Psellos’ rhetorical and aesthetic writings, with its expert introductory essays and detailed annotations, will make him widely available and accessible at last. Thanks to the splendid efforts of this team of leading Byzantinists, Psellos will find his rightful place on the syllabus and in the classroom, and he will soon become a household name among students of Classics and of later periods. Michael Psellos on Literature and Art augurs a new era in the study of antiquity’s cultural heritage at the boundaries of art, religion, and philosophy." —James I. Porter, Chancellor’s Professor of Rhetoric and Classics, University of California, Berkeley
