Responses to the Histories were rich and varied, and the range of Hellenistic writers responding in different ways to Herodotus' work is in part a reflection of the 'Histories 'own broad scope. The 'Histories' remained relevant in this later age and continued to speak meaningfully to a broad range of readers long after Herodotus' death. This book explores a variety of discourses where Herodotus occupies an important place in the intellectual background, and, in particular, it draws attention to writers not usually categorized as historians in order to broaden our perspectives on Herodotus' cultural importance."@en ;
