Craig W. Kallendorf is Professor of English and Classics at Texas A&M University. He is the author of In Praise of Aeneas (1989), Virgil and the Myth of Venice (2000), and The Other Virgil (2007) as well as over 30 articles on the classical tradition.
Over the last two decades the interest in reception studies has escalated significantly, offering a new sophistication to the scholarly investigation of the classical tradition, and new insight on its evolution through modern scholarship. Comprising 26 newly commissioned essays from an international team of experts, A Companion to the Classical Tradition accommodates the pressing need for an up-to-date introduction and overview for this booming field. The Companion is divided into three sections: a chronological survey, from the Middle Ages to the modern era; a geographical survey, including Latin America, Africa, and Central-Eastern Europe as well as Western Europe and the US; and a group of topics ranging from post-colonialism to gender construction that illustrate the intersection of the classical tradition with contemporary theory.
