    Roman Landscape: Culture and Identity.Diana Spencer - 2010 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book tackles how and why 'landscape' (farms, gardens, countryside) set the scene in the first centuries BCE and CE for Romans keen to talk up and about (but also to scrutinize and understand) what it meant to be a citizen.

It encourages examination of 'landscape' from a range of angles, suggesting (...)

    In this engagingly complex discussion of Pliny Books 1–9, Marchesi, like her Pliny, shows a facility in manipulating a multifarious network of allusions and readerly expectations. In the process she delivers one of those rarities, the academic page-turner. Marchesi finds, in Pliny, an acutely self-conscious and highly literary subject and sets out her agenda clearly in two opening sections ; we should expect to find that "Pliny's epistolary corpus emerges as a carefully organised work that experiments with the boundaries of (...)
