Central and Eastern Europe s rich and longstanding history of classical receptions is largely unknown beyond its borders. A Handbook to Classical Reception in Eastern and Central Europe is the first comprehensive English language study of the reception of classical antiquity in Eastern and Central Europe. This groundbreaking work offers detailed case studies of twelve countries that are fully contextualized historically, locally, and regionally.
This handbook is divided into chapters by country. Case studies delve into the pre–national and national receptions of classical literature and material culture Croatia, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bosnia–Herzegovina, Serbia and Montenegro, Bulgaria, Russia, Armenia and Georgia. This volume features contributions from scholars based both within and beyond the region, providing an invaluable range of perspectives which help to extend reception studies into histories, literatures, and cultures previously inaccessible to English speakers.
This handbook unveils ways in which specific national cultures have engaged with classical Greece and Rome and helps readers understand, in turn, how classical antiquity contributed to the idea of nation building in the region.
