The act of looking, both outwards and inwards, was an important element in Roman culture with Roman vision, so Fredrick argues, being distinct from both Greek and Western vision. This collection of nine essays draws on modern gender and material culture theory to examine the many ways in which Roman men and women envisioned themselves as both the subject and object of vision. Contributors focus in particular on sexual behaviour, the theatre, literature and art, including episodes from the works of Lucan and Lucretius, the relationship between shame and sight, and the suburban baths of Pompeii.
