Book Review: Graffiti and the Literary Landscape in Roman Pompeii

9780199684618

The review I wrote of Kristina Milnor‘s latest book has just been made available online by The Classical Review, a publication of the Classical Association. Her book, Graffiti & the Literary Landscape of Pompeii, addresses Pompeian graffiti that is thought to derive from or otherwise copy known ancient authors or literary styles. For the purposes of her study, Milnor focuses entirely on metrical graffiti. In addition, she discusses potential influences on some other types of graffiti, mainly greetings as a reflection of epistolary style. I admittedly have some issue with her methods and overall conclusions, but for that you’ll just have to read the review. It is available online here.
