About the Author

Martha Malamud is a Professor in the Classics Department at the University at Buffalo (State University of New York). She specializes in Roman imperial and late antique literature, and has edited the classical journal Arethusa since 1995.


"Malamud's elegant translation, with authoritative introduction and notes, succeeds wonderfully in making Rutilius' poem accessible for the first time to the modern reader. The poet's elegiac response to a changing world in the aftermath of the invasion of Gaul and the fall of Rome will now find the readership the fascination of its subject matter deserves." - Professor Michael Roberts, Wesleyan University"We are long overdue for a modern English translation of De reditu suo for classroom use, so this volume is both timely and welcome. The poem is particularly instructive for the light that it sheds on a pagan’s perspective of Rome and its legacy in the early fifth century... Malamud’s modern translation deserves to find a place in college classrooms." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
