African American Writers and Classical Tradition, 2010

book cover with title

Authors: Cook, William W.; Tatum, James

Over the past three decades, the most significant change in the field of Classics has been the turn to studying post-antique responses to Greco-Roman culture. This shift has enabled the inclusion of perspectives from a vast array of times and places. Against this background, William Cook and James Tatum of Dartmouth College (the latter an alumnus of the UT Classics Department) co-authored this pathbreaking study of the role of the Classics in African American writing across three centuries.
