Pericles at Play: a Literary Classical Receptions Journal publishes poetry and literary fiction with a relation to the ancient world and/or its reception.


We hope to display some of the best contemporary voices writing classical receptions today, exhibiting different and diverse disciplinary approaches to the ancient and its reception, providing a platform for the performance of a ‘reception in action’.
