This volume is the first holistic investigation of Roman literature and literary culture under Nerva, Trajan and Hadrian (AD 96–138). With case studies from Frontinus, Juvenal, Martial, Pliny the Younger, Plutarch, Quintilian, Suetonius and Tacitus among others, the eighteen chapters offer not just innovative readings of literary (and some 'less literary') texts, but a collaborative enquiry into the networks and culture in which they are embedded. The book brings together established and novel methodologies to explore the connections, conversations and silences between these texts and their authors, both on and off the page. The scholarly dialogues that result not only shed fresh light on the dynamics of literary production and consumption in the 'High Roman Empire', but offer new provocations to students of intertextuality and interdiscursivity across classical literature. How can and should we read textual interactions in their social, literary and cultural contexts?

Hans Holbein the Younger (1497/8–1543) was one of the most versatile and admired painters of the Northern Renaissance. This richly illustrated book by Oskar Bätschmann and Pascal Griener – the first comprehensive monograph on the artist to appear in more than forty years – is a major advance in our understanding of Holbein’s contribution to European art. Re-examining every aspect of a remarkeable career, the authors take full account of the artistic and cultural influences that affected Holbein and of his friendships with leading humanists such as Erasmus and Sir Thomas More. As a result the book casts fresh light on many previously vexing questions and misunderstandings about this great artist’s life and work.
