Anger is found everywhere in the ancient world, from the very first word of the Iliad through all literary genres and every aspect of public and private life. Yet, it is only very recently that classicists, historians, and philosophers have begun to study anger in antiquity. This volume includes significant new studies by authors from different disciplines and countries on the literary, philosophical, medical, and political aspects of ancient anger.
