201 Lanman, Charles Rockwell SANSKRIT READER Text and Vocabulary and Notes
Harvard University Press 1997 0674789008 / 9780674789005 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Light spotting to boards. Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; The Reader is designed to serve as an introduction to the subject for the students and to provide knowledge of Sanskrit to the teachers of high schools, academies and colleges. The work helps to correct some of the false notions which are prevalent respecting the relations of Sanskrit to other languages of the Indo-European family. It also keeps to save the literature from undue depreciation and from exaggerated praise. The author has made selections from various Sanskrit writings keeping two aims in mind-firstly to provide abundant material for thorough drill in the language of classical period; and secondly, to furnish a brief introduction to the works of the Vedic period, Mantra, Brahmana and Sutra best suited for beginners. Among the Vedic hymns (or Mantra material) are, first, some of the easiest: then some taken an account of their poetic or dramatic merit, or their ethical interest and finally some taken because of their historical importance. For the most part, a repetition of the hymns given by Delbruck and Bohtlingk in their chrestomathies have been avoided. The Brahmana pieces are chosen in such a way as to show the relation of this kind of literature to the hymns or Mantras. The selections from the Grihya-sutras are the two most interesting chapters of Indian private antiquities, the wedding and the burial service. Care has been taken that all the stanzas here citied by their first words should be given in full among the selections of the hymns. ; 1.21 x 9.22 x 6.18 Inches; 446 pages

216 Livingston, Ivy A LINGUISTIC COMMENTARY ON LIVIUS ANDRONICUS
Routledge 2004 0415968992 / 9780415968997 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
Studies in Classics; 120 pages; Virtually all recent major work on Livius Andronicus has focused on assessing his artistic merits and his skills as a translator of Homer. But, as the oldest literary Latin preserved in any quantity, the language of Livius shows many features of linguistic interest and raises intriguing questions of phonolgy, morphology and syntax. In this book, Ivy Livingston frames an examination of Livius' Latin in the form of a commentary. Although Livius provides the starting-point of each comment, his language is sufficiently similar to his nearest successors - such as Naevius or Ennius - that many of the discussions do not also end with Livius, but explore wider-ranging problems of Latin and of Indo-European linguistics.

221 Luschey, Heinz RECHTS UND LINKS Untersuchungen Über Bewegungsrichtung, Seitenordnung Und Höhenordnung Als Elemente Der Antiken Bildsprache

Minor creasing along top of DJ. Minor rubbing to DJ. ; 131 pages; Das von Heinz Luschey (3. 12. 1910 -1.1. 1992) selbst gewählte Thema hat den Verfasser ein Leben lang begleitet. Doch seine Fragestellungen sind immer noch aufregend und ganz und gar nicht überholt. Heinz Luschey sagte dazu: "Das Bildmaterial ist nicht so sehr neu, es ist aber neu gesehen"; oder: "... Denn in der Bewegungsrichtung allein der Gestalten schon liegt etwas, was außer J. D. Beazley eigentlich niemand in unserer Wissenschaft gesehen hat. Wer sieht schon das Einfache?" Bernhard Schweitzer, der damalige Ordinarius für Klassische Archäologie in Tübingen, habilitierte Heinz Luschey mit dieser Arbeit und schloß sein Gutachten vom 22. 12. 1955 mit der Formulierung: "in summa: ein sehendes Auge und ein produktives Denken, Verantwortung vor Wissenschaft und Sprache, didaktische Begabung, endlich die Erfahrung und die Sicherheit eines reifen Gelehrten stehen hinter der vorgelegten Arbeit. " Karl Schefold, Klassischer Archäologe aus Basel, meinte 1993 dazu: "Als hervorragender Kenner der griechischen und römischen, aber auch der fernöstlichen und alt-orientalischen Kunst und mit seinem feinen Sinn für die Form des Kunstwerks hat er dieses Problem in einen weltgeschichtlichen Zusammenhang gestellt. " Und Heinz Gaube, Orientalist aus Tübingen: "Nun liegt die Arbeit technisch auf den wissenschaftlich neuesten Stand gebracht vor. Ich schrieb "technisch" (d. H. Die Anmerkungen) , denn inhaltlich ist an diesem Wurf nichts zu ändern. Die Arbeit ist ein "Klassiker" und kann in dieser Art von niemandem wiederholt werden. "

225 Mackie, Hilary TALKING TROJAN Speech and Community in the Iliad
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1996 0847682544 / 9780847682546 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Faint foxing to top of textblock. Tiny chip to head of spine. Minor pencil marginalia to about 7 pages. ; 208 pages; In this penetrating new look at the use of language in the Iliad, Hilary Mackie examines the portrayal of the opposing forces in terms not only of nationality but of linguistics. The way the Greeks and the Trojans speak, Mackie argues, reflects their disparate cultural structures and their relative positions in the Trojan War. While Achaean speech is aggressive and public, intended to preserve social order, Trojan language is more reflective, private, and introspective. Mackie identifies the differences between Greek and Trojan language by analyzing poetic formulas, usually thought to indicate a similarity of language among Homeric characters, and conversations, which are seen here to be of equal importance to the numerous speeches throughout the Iliad. Mackie concludes with analyses of the two great heroes of the Iliad, Hektor and Achilles, and the extent to which they represent their own cultures in their use of language.

232 May, James M. TRIALS OF CHARACTER The Eloquence of Ciceronian Ethos
The University of North Carolina Press 1988 0807817597 / 9780807817599 Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Scratch to front panel of DJ. Minor rubbing to DJ else NF. ; 0.88 x 9.48 x 6.38 Inches; 224 pages; By its very nature, the art of oratory involves character. Verbal persuasion entails the presentation of a persona by the speaker that affects an audience for good or ill. In this book, James May explores the role and extent of Cicero's use of ethos and demonstrates its persuasive effect. May discusses the importance of ethos, not just in classical rhetorical theory but also in the social, political, and judicial milieu of ancient Rome, and then applies his insights to the oratory of Cicero. Ciceronian ethos was a complex blend of Roman tradition, Cicero's own personality, and selected features of Greek and Roman oratory. More than any other ancient literary genre, oratory dealt with constantly changing circumstances, with a wide variety of rhetorical challenges. An orator's success or failure, as well as the artistic quality of his orations, was largely the direct result of his responses to these circumstances and challenges. Acutely aware of his audience and its cultural heritage and steeped in the rhetorical traditions of his predecessors, Cicero employed rhetorical ethos with uncanny success. May analyzes individual speeches from four different periods of Cicero's career, tracing changes in the way Cicero depicted character, both his own and others', as a source of persuasion, changes intimately connected with the vicissitudes of Cicero's career and personal life. He shows that ethos played a major role in almost every Ciceronian speech, that Cicero's audiences were conditioned by common beliefs about character, and finally, that Cicero's rhetorical ethos became a major source for persuasion in his oratory.
