Book Launch: Tessa Roynon's The Classical Tradition in Modern American Fiction
Please join us for a discussion of Tessa Roynon’s acclaimed new book The Classical Tradition in Modern American Fiction (Edinburgh University Press, 2021) with an international panel of experts in American and Classical literature.

The Classical Tradition in Modern American Fiction is an invaluable survey of the allusions to ancient Greek and Roman culture in the work of seven major modern American novelists: Willa Cather, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ralph Ellison, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth and Marilynne Robinson. Making the classical world accessible to all readers, it combines new close readings of three key texts by each author with overviews of the essential prior scholarship in the field. It also builds on archival research in documenting the nature and extent of each author’s own familiarity with classical literature and languages. You can read more about the book on the Oxford Arts Blog.
