"The Roman Gaze: Vision, Power, and the Body uses the concept of "the gaze," derived from psychoanalytic criticism, to examine literary, visual, and material evidence that reveals the contributions of ancient Rome to the development of Western subjectivity and sexuality. Contributors draw upon a wide range of theoretical methods, using visual and body theory from various fields and period specializations. Topics include violence and gender in Senecan theater, literary representations of erotic love within a hierarchical and violent Rome, and the differing appeal of artistic depictions designed for visual consumption by both genders. The Roman Gaze will interest readers in history, classics, literature, art, and cinema."
