This is an introduction to the study of the ancient romances aimed at Italian university students and members of the public interested in the history of story-telling in Classical Antiquity (p. 12). The authors have translated all quotations into Italian and assume no prior knowledge of the subject. A list of references for further reading ('Approfondimenti') follows each chapter and this makes an extremely useful guide to the most recent publications in the field, especially those of continental European scholars, where much interesting work has recently been done and, judging in part by the present volume, continues to be done.
