Series:Beiträge zur Altertumskunde 304
Aims and Scope
In the literature of the late Roman Republic, political change was accompanied by a loosening of tradition concepts of sexual morality and gender. Investigating texts from Lucilius to Ovid, the author shows that the subjects of masculinity and effeminatio are closely tied to political discourse in every literary genre of the time.

"[...] Steenblock’s work is a valuable contribution to a better understanding of the complexity and the performativity of ancient gender roles. Steenblock has produced a philologically sound and well-thought-out study, which not only offers a number of interesting interpretations but also inspires her readers to undertake further research into the field of ancient gender norms."
