Literature of captivity with fictional representations of slavery is ubiquitous in Greek and Latin novels of the Roman Empire period, typically in the shadow of major protagonists and their heroic narratives. This volume through an interdisciplinary academic lens analyzes multiple ancient texts and narratives of the literary theory, in dialog with medieval and colonial accounts of contemporary slavery. It has been attempted to stress the unique cultural, mythical, philosophical and historical contexts of the ancient literature.
