Contributions to a speculative journal special issue are sought from those interested in taking a critical look at the resurgence of engagements with ancient literature and mythology in contemporary women’s writing.
The English word “school” derives from the Greek word scholia, which may also be translated as “leisure.” It is perhaps because of this association between school and leisure that education in Greece and Rome was not confined to the schoolroom but was present in all aspects of Classical life, including its literature. The earliest examples of Greek literature, the poetry of Homer and Hesiod, were written not only to entertain but to teach, while the audiences of Classical theatre were directed to learn from the plays that they watched. Subsequent Greco-Roman literary works frequently emphasized the educational progress of their characters.
