The case-studies in this volume explore how motion is treated in Greek and Latin visual art and literature, offering a new and stimulating approach to these well-known works.

Professor G. O. Hutchinson studied at Balliol College, Oxford, as an undergraduate, then took up a position at Christ Church as a Research Lecturer. In 1984 he became Fellow and Tutor in Classics at Exeter College, Oxford, and in 1998 Professor of Greek and Latin Languages and Literature, before being appointed to the Regius Chair of Greek in 2015 and returning to Christ Church. Motion in Classical Literature is his tenth single-authored book; the others, mostly published by OUP, are commentaries on Aeschylus' Seven against Thebes (1985), a selection of Greek lyric poetry (2001), and Propertius' Elegies, Book IV (CUP, 2006), and the monographs Hellenistic Poetry (1988), Latin Literature from Seneca to Juvenal: A Critical Study (1993), Cicero's Correspondence: A Literary Study (1998), Talking Books: Readings in Hellenistic and Roman Books of Poetry (2008), Greek to Latin: Frameworks and Contexts for Intertextuality (2013), and Plutarch's Rhythmic Prose (2018).
