Pencil marginalia and corrections to some pages by R. E. Fantham else book is fine. ; Although it was labeled an anti-epic for trumping the celebratory scope of the Roman national epos, Lucans Bellum Civile is a hymn to lost republican liberty composed under Neros tyrannical empire. Lucan lost his life in a foiled conspiracy to replace the emperor, but his poem survived the wreckage of antiquity and enjoyed uninterrupted readership. The present collection samples the most current approaches to Lucans poem, its themes, its dialogue with other texts, its reception in medieval and early modern literature, and its relevance to audiences of all times. ; Brill's Companions in Classical Studies; 626 pages

10 Beagon, Mary ROMAN NATURE The Thought of Pliny the Elder
Oxford Clarendon Press 1992 0198147260 / 9780198147268 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Faint soiling to ffep. Lower corners very lightly bumped. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Oxford Classical Monographs; 272 pages; Pliny's Natural History has too often been regarded as simply a quarry for quaint stories--a view which has tended to overshadow its overall structure and purpose. In this book, Beagon redresses the balance and illuminates the Natural History as the work of an author with an identifiable mode of thinking and a coherent attitude toward his clearly-stated theme, Nature. Taking its cue from Pliny, the book examines his cosmology and in particular his portrayal of the relationship between nature and what he considered nature's greatest creation, Humankind. Author and work are also placed in their wider literary and historical context. Pliny himself emerges no longer as a faceless compiler but as a character with a valuable contribution to make to an understanding of intellectual attitudes in the first century A.D. A more typical Roman than most of the intellectual authors studied today, he can offer a much more accurate picture of the Roman in his "natural" setting.

This volume sets out to identify the defining characteristics, functions and discourses of pollution in Rome in such realms as disease and medicine, death and burial, sexuality and virginity, prostitution, purity and absolution, personal hygiene and morality, criminality, bodies and cleansing, waste disposal, decay, ruins and urban renovation, as well as studying the means by which that pollution was policed and controlled. ; British School at Rome Studies; 342 pages
