Recent decades have brought fresh appreciation of the rich and varied literature written in Greek during the first centuries CE. This introductory survey covers the period's most prominent genres, from romance novels and Lucian's satire to science, miscellanism and the geographical work of Pausanias. Konig considers both the literary sophistication of the texts and the ways in which they reflect the changing cultural and social background of the Roman Empire.
