About the Author

Brian P. Sowers is Assistant Professor of Classics at Brooklyn College, City University of New York.


In Her Own Words complements existing historical and generic studies of Eudocia's poetry and forges new territory in situating her corpus as a whole in context, synthesizing style and themes across her works, and offering the first English translation of her Martyrdom of Cyprian...Eudocia emerges as an impressive rhetor and diplomat...The absence of women's writing in late antiquity is more keenly felt when even a small selection can elicit such depth about one of the women whose writing we do have. -- Amy Hughes * Journal of Early Christian Studies *
Successfully investigates the self-image that Eudocia presented throughout her works, which complements well the portrait that has thus far been reconstructed on the basis of historical evidence...An indispensable addition to the corpus of scholarship on this topic. -- Hannelore Segers * New England Classical Journal *
[An] excellent study of Eudocia's poetry...In continuing the process of recovering Eudocia's actual voice, [Sowers] offers a valuable addition to our understanding of intellectual life in late antiquity by providing a convincing portrait of the learning and talents of an exceptional woman. -- David Potter * Classical Outlook *
