Sexuality and Gender in the Classical World: Readings and Sources by Laura K. McClure

Not for the faint of heart, I found this collection of essays to be at times gripping and at others mind-numbingly dull. Id hoped to find more here on gender variance and deviation from gender norms in ancient Greece and Rome. Instead I found a wholly conventional approach to the subject of gender, with the lions share of attention given to the problem of the absence of womens voices in the first person among the remaining cultural artifacts. Im eager to take what I learned here, however, and apply it to my project of reading through Plato.
