CREATIVE LIVES IN CLASSICAL ANTIQUITY: POETS, ARTISTS AND BIOGRAPHY. Ed. by Richard Fletcher and Johanna Hanink. Cambridge University Press, 2016. Cambridge Classical Studies. ISBN 9781107159082 In English.
Publisher's description: What happened when creative biographers took on especially creative subjects (poets, artists and others) in Greek and Roman antiquity? Creative Lives in Classical Antiquity examines how the biographical traditions of ancient poets and artists parallel the creative processes of biographers themselves, both within antiquity and beyond. Each chapter explores a range of biographical material that highlights the complexity of how readers and viewers imagine the lives of ancient creator-figures. Work in the last decades has emphasized the likely fictionality of nearly all of the ancient evidence about the lives of poets, as well as of other artists and intellectuals; this book now sets out to show what we might nevertheless still do with the rich surviving testimony for 'creative lives' - and the evidence that those traditions still shape how we narrate modern lives too.
