Description: This book offers a novel and unconventional approach to Roman culture through food as it is represented in literature. Although food is not generally thought of as the noblest of literary subjects--and this view is a legacy from the Romans--it is curious that Roman writers chose so persistently to depict their society at the dinner-table. Why this was so, and what effect the inclusion of food has on the status of the literary texts that contained it, are among the questions discussed.
