New Publications from C.W. Marshall

Dr. C.W. (Toph) Marshall has just published a book, The Libation Bearers (Bloomsbury). In this introduction to the second play of Aeschylus’ trilogy, the Oresteia, Dr. Marshall draws on his expertise in performance to help readers understand the ancient audience’s experience of the text in performance and explores other themes of the play in their historical context.

Toph also guest-edited a special section of the latest volume of Illinois Classical Studies on “Wet-Nursing and Breastfeeding in Greece and Rome,” and contributed the introduction and a paper (“Breastfeeding in Greek Literature and Thought”) to the section.
