Rezensionen
"Der vorliegende Band bietet eine wertvolle systematische Übersicht über ein Thema, das zuvor im Gegensatz zu Humor und Gelächter nur punktuell erforscht wurde."
Judith Hindermann in: Museum Helveticum Universität Basel Vol. 67 Fasc. 4 (2010)

"En definitiva, estamos ante una obra completa y exhaustiva que nos aporta diversas visiones e interpretaciones de autores y épocas sobre un tema en el Mundo Antiguo que, según queda demostrado, requería una mayor profundización: las lágrimas."
Jorge Tárrega in: BMCR 2010.10.14

"Insgesamt besticht der vorliegende Band [...] durch seine Ausgewogenheit und die Aktualität der in ihm vertretenen Forschungsansätze."
Judith Hagen in: H-Soz-u-Kult, 22.03.2010
