Tim Whitmarsh's Beyond the Second Sophistic consists of ten substantially revised and updated essays and five previously unpublished pieces, all of them focusing on literature of the Hellenistic and Imperial Era. In the 'Introduction' (pp. 1-7), Whitmarsh clearly displays his primary motivation by explaining that his neologism 'postclassicism' is intended 'principally, to mark an aspiration to rethink classicist categories inherited from the nineteenth century' (p. 1).
