Thucydidean Narrative and Discourse brings together several of her most thoughtful papers on figures and issues including the 400, Cleon, and Alcibiades, and joins them with new material on narrative technique. The assembled papers are an important complement to Professor Langs pathbreaking study of Herodotean narrative. Together with introductory essays by the volumes editors, these papers will enable students of historiography in general to obtain a better understanding of how Thucydides engaged his audience.

Although they were written over many years, the papers share a consistency of insight that makes them continually relevant to all who endeavor to understand the literary art of Thucydides. Reviews for this volume: [T]his collection of Langs writings should complement any bookshelf devoted to Thucydides or to narratological approaches to ancient literature. - Bryn Mawr Classical Review Very engaging and thought-provoking... - The Classical Outlook
