Despite the recent explosion of scholarly interest in the field of ancient sexuality, inquiry into major shifts in erotic consciousness is still in a preliminary stage. The essays in this collection, which focus upon the representation of the desiring subject in prose fiction, advance our understanding considerably as they probe the ambiguities surrounding the ostensible opposition of male and female in such texts. The volume will provide a needed point of departure for subsequent research into modifications to gender frameworks at a time of social transition.
