6 Anderson, William S. & Lorina N. Quartarone APPROACHES TO TEACHING VERGIL'S AENEID
The Modern Language Association of America 2002 0873527720 / 9780873527729 Softcover Very Good 
Minor scuffing to wraps. Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; Vergil's Aeneid has been the most continually read and discussed work by a Roman author in the history of Western literature. Yet it can be a challenging work to teach--Vergil is a complex, subtle poet; his culture and time are removed from us; and Latin is less studied in college than it was a generation ago. Part 1 of this volume, "Materials," critiques the main English translations, lists reference works and resources (including those on the Internet) , and gives an overview of criticism. Part 2, "Approaches," strikes a balance between traditional and new approaches to the text. Among the subjects of these essays are Augustan politics, Homeric parallels, key terms (pietas, furor) , narrative techniques, uses of simile, images of women, the treatment of warfare, and comparisons of the Aeneid with such works as Dante's Divine Comedy and Milton's Paradise Lost. ; Approaches to Teaching World Literature; 268 pages

13 Aratus; Aaron Poochigian ARATUS: PHAENOMENA Translated, with an Introduction and Notes
Johns Hopkins University Press 2010 0801894662 / 9780801894664 Paperback Very Good 
Scholar's name to half-title (Robert Brown). Tiny corner crease to 2 pages. Else fine. ; After the Iliad and the Odyssey, the Phaenomena was the most widely read poem in the ancient world. Its fame was immediate. It was translated into Latin by Ovid and Cicero and quoted by St. Paul in the New Testament, and it was one of the few Greek poems translated into Arabic. Aratus’ Phaenomena is a didactic poem? A practical manual in verse that teaches the reader to identify constellations and predict weather. The poem also explains the relationship between celestial phenomena and such human affairs as agriculture and navigation. Despite the historical and pedagogical importance of the poem, no English edition suitable for students and general readers has been available for decades. Aaron Poochigian’s lively translation makes accessible one of the most influential poets of antiquity. Poochigian's interpretation of the Phaenomena reestablishes the ancient link between poetry and science and demonstrates that verse is an effective medium for instruction. Featuring references to Classical mythology and science, star charts of the northern and southern skies, extensive notes, and an introduction to the work’s stylistic features and literary reception, this dynamic work will appeal to students of Ancient Greece who want to deepen their understanding of the Classical world. ; Johns Hopkins New Translations from Antiquity; 112 pages
