101 Barchiesi, Alessandro & (Ilaria Marchesi & Matt Fox, translated by) & Philip Hardie (Foreword) HOMERIC EFFECTS IN VERGIL'S NARRATIVE
Princeton University Press 2015 069116181X / 9780691161815 Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Publisher's stamp to base of textblock. Else book is fine. Very faint scuffing to DJ. Else fine. ; The study of Homeric imitations in Vergil has one of the longest traditions in Western culture, starting from the very moment the Aeneid was circulated. Homeric Effects in Vergil's Narrative is the first English translation of one of the most important and influential modern studies in this tradition. In this revised and expanded edition, Alessandro Barchiesi advances innovative approaches even as he recuperates significant earlier interpretations, from Servius to G. N. Knauer. Approaching Homeric allusions in the Aeneid as "narrative effects" rather than glimpses of the creative mind of the author at work, Homeric Effects in Vergil's Narrative demonstrates how these allusions generate hesitations and questions, as well as insights and guidance, and how they participate in the creation of narrative meaning. The book also examines how layers of competing interpretations in Homer are relevant to the Aeneid, revealing again the richness of the Homeric tradition as a component of meaning in the Aeneid. Finally, Homeric Effects in Vergil's Narrative goes beyond previous studies of the Aeneid by distinguishing between two forms of Homeric intertextuality: reusing a text as an individual model or as a generic matrix. For this edition, a new chapter has been added, and in a new afterword the author puts the book in the context of changes in the study of Latin literature and intertextuality. ; 216 pages

111 Bartsch, Shadi IDEOLOGY IN COLD BLOOD A Reading of Lucan's Civil War
Harvard University Press 1998 0674442911 / 9780674442917 Hardcover Very Good in Near Fine dust jacket 
Scholar's small bookplate to ffep (R. E. Fantham). Marginalia in pen to about 3 pages (a word or two). Else very minor shelfwear to book and DJ. ; Is Lucan's brilliant and grotesque epic Civil War an example of ideological poetry at its most flagrant, or is it a work that despairingly proclaims the meaninglessness of ideology? Shadi Bartsch offers a startlingly new answer to this split debate on the Roman poet's magnum opus. Reflecting on the disintegration of the Roman republic in the wake of the civil war that began in 49 B. C. , Lucan (writing during the grim tyranny of Nero's Rome) recounts that fateful conflict with a strangely ambiguous portrayal of his republican hero, Pompey. Although the story is one of a tragic defeat, the language of his epic is more often violent and nihilistic than heroic and tragic. And Lucan is oddly fascinated by the graphic destruction of lives, the violation of human bodies--an interest paralleled in his deviant syntax and fragmented poetry. In an analysis that draws on contemporary political thought ranging from Hannah Arendt and Richard Rorty to the poetry of Vietnam veterans, as well as on literary theory and ancient sources, Bartsch finds in the paradoxes of Lucan's poetry both a political irony that responds to the universally perceived need for, yet suspicion of, ideology, and a recourse to the redemptive power of storytelling. This shrewd and lively book contributes substantially to our understanding of Roman civilization and of poetry as a means of political expression. ; Revealing Antiquity; 236 pages

Pàtron Editore 2007 8855529072 / 9788855529075 Softcover Very Good 
Minor shelfwear. Light edgewear to wraps. Tiny stain to textblock. ; Esiste un’equazione ricorrente tra tragedia e donna, poiché attraverso la femminilità trova espressione privilegiata il linguaggio delle emozioni. Anche le mulieres comiche sembrano consapevoli di essere le eredi di una tradizione illustre, cui espressamente si richiamano ricordando a se stesse e allo spettatore le infinite malae risorse di cui dispongono: “per una donna - commenta con franchezza Fronesio nel Truculentus - è molto più semplice male facere... Quam bene”. Se già Orazio osserva, non senza pregiudizio, come la commedia talvolta innalzi la voce e tenda ad invadere il territorio della tragedia, allora è proprio la mulier del teatro plautino a costituire una sintesi efficace dei meccanismi di funzionamento della paratragedia. Saggiare gli spazi “in sopralinea” del pathos femminile equivale dunque ad individuare il processo artistico che ha condotto alla metabolizzazione dei materiali dell’officina tragica, condensandoli, in ultima istanza, in una “maniera”. ; Testi E Manuali Per L'Insegnamento Universitario Del Latino; 93; 320 pages

146 Bispham, Edward & Greg Rowe, Elaine Matthews (Eds. ) VITA VIGILIA EST Essays in Honour of Barbara Levick
Institute of Classical Studies 2008 1905670141 / 9781905670147 Softcover Fine 
Institute of Classical Studies Bulletin Supplement 97; 193 pages; The new millennium sees both Pliny the Elder and his massive encyclopaedic Natural History being studied more seriously and holistically than at any time in the preceding century. The essays in this volume, which honour the seminal work of Barbara Levick on the politics and society of imperial Rome, above all in the period of Pliny’s life and literary activity further this re-assessment. They consider aspects of Pliny’s life and output which have not so far received serious attention. These include his value as a source for the kings of Rome and their achievements; his attitude to astronomy and natural wonders, to gentilician commemoration, philosophical sects, Roman dress and coinage; and his moral judgements on the fall of the Republic. The essays consider the ideological climate of the Flavian period, as reflected not only in Pliny’s attitude to the past, but in his construction of Rome and Italy, and his relationship to contemporary writers like Licinius Mucianus. Pliny emerges clearly as a major literary and cultural figure of the early Empire.

147 Bispham, Edward & Greg Rowe, Elaine Matthews (Eds. ) VITA VIGILIA EST Essays in Honour of Barbara Levick
Institute of Classical Studies 2008 1905670141 / 9781905670147 Softcover Very Good 
Inscribed to scholar R. E. Fantham from one of the contributors, Geraldine Herbert-Brown on ffep. Light creasing to corners of wraps. Minor shelfwear. ; Institute of Classical Studies Bulletin Supplement 97; 193 pages; The new millennium sees both Pliny the Elder and his massive encyclopaedic Natural History being studied more seriously and holistically than at any time in the preceding century. The essays in this volume, which honour the seminal work of Barbara Levick on the politics and society of imperial Rome, above all in the period of Pliny’s life and literary activity further this re-assessment. They consider aspects of Pliny’s life and output which have not so far received serious attention. These include his value as a source for the kings of Rome and their achievements; his attitude to astronomy and natural wonders, to gentilician commemoration, philosophical sects, Roman dress and coinage; and his moral judgements on the fall of the Republic. The essays consider the ideological climate of the Flavian period, as reflected not only in Pliny’s attitude to the past, but in his construction of Rome and Italy, and his relationship to contemporary writers like Licinius Mucianus.
