Roman Sexualities
Edited by Judith P. Hallett and Marilyn B. Skinner

This collection of essays seeks to establish Roman constructions of
sexuality and gender difference as a distinct area of research,
complementing work already done on Greece to give a fuller picture of
ancient sexuality. By applying feminist critical tools to forms of public
discourse, including literature, history, law, medicine, and political
oratory, the essays explore the hierarchy of power reflected so strongly in
most Roman sexual relations, where  noblemen acted as the penetrators and
women, boys, and slaves the penetrated. In many cases,  the authors show
how these roles could be inverted-in ways that revealed citizens' anxieties
during the days of the early Empire, when traditional power structures
seemed threatened.

In the essays, Jonathan Walters defines the impenetrable male body as the
ideational norm;  Holt Parker and Catharine Edwards treat literary and
legal models of male sexual deviance;  Anthony Corbeill unpacks political
charges of immoral behavior at banquets, while Marilyn B.  Skinner, Ellen
Oliensis, and David Fredrick trace linkages between social status and the
gender  role of the male speaker in Roman lyric and elegy; Amy Richlin
interrogates popular medical  belief about the female body; Sandra R.
Joshel examines the semiotics of empire underlying the  historiographic
portrayal of the empress Messalina; Judith P. Hallett and Pamela Gordon
critique Roman caricatures of the woman-desiring woman; and Alison Keith
discovers subversive  allusions to the tragedy of Dido in the elegist
Sulpicia's self-depiction as a woman in love.
