Product Overview

This book offers an illuminating re-appraisal of the domestic space in classical Greece. Starting from the premise that we must cease to view the classical Greek house through the lens of contemporary Western notions of the household, Janett Morgan provides a fresh evaluation of what 'home' meant to different communities in the ancient Greek world. By employing textual analysis alongside archaeological scholarship her book seeks to explain some of the contradictions that previous, more simplistic approaches have left unanswered. Of value to students and academics alike, Morgan's work gives an exciting new perspective on relations between men and women, between public and private, and between home and city in the ancient world.
