Theory for Classics: A student's guide is a clear and concise handbook to the key connections between Classical Studies and critical theory in the 20th century. Louise A Hitchcock looks at the way classics has been engaged across a number of disciplines.

Brisk, thoughtful, provocative, and engaging, this will be an essential first volume for anyone interested in the intersection between theory and classical studies today.Hitchcock, Louise is the author of 'Theory for Classics', published 2008 under ISBN 9780415454988 and ISBN 0415454980.
