dc.description.abstract This lecture traces the changing experience of visiting Pompeii through the nineteenth century. It argues against the standard idea that there was a shift over the century from a Romantic view of the site to a more archaeological approach (which stressed the reconstruction of Roman daily life). It suggests instead that two conflicting visions of the city (“city of the dead”/”city of the living”) were always held in tension. en
