201 Burstein, Stanley M. (Ed) THE HELLENISTIC AGE FROM THE BATTLE OF IPSOS TO THE DEATH OF KLEOPATRA VII Translated Documents of Greek and Rome, Volume 3
Cambridge University Press 1985 052128158X / 9780521281584 Softcover Very Good 
Light shelfwear. Gift inscription from editor on half-title. ; Valuable documentary material is buried in inscriptions and papyri and in the works of Greek and Roman grammarians and scholars, and less well known historians and literary figures, of whose writings only isolated quotations have been preserved. Translated Documents of Greece and Rome has been planned to provide, above all, primary source material for the study of the classical world. It makes important historical documents available in English to scholars and students of classical history. The format of the translations is remarkable in attempting to reproduce faithfully the textual difficulties and uncertainties inherent in the documents, so that the reader without a knowledge of classical languages can assess the reliability of the various readings and interpretations. The author"s purpose in compiling this book is to help the teaching of Hellenistic history ; Translated Documents of Greece and Rome 3; Vol. 3; 196 pages; Signed by Editor

Light shelfwear to wraps with faint crease to one corner. Else fine. ; 264 pages; Tibullus was one of the leading poets of Augustan Rome. Professor Cairns examines in detail aspects of Tibullus' poetic craftsmanship - his learning, his interest in the meanings of words, his use of suspense and deception, his control of the structures of his elegies - and demonstrates the original qualities of Tibullus' verse. This examination is carried out by relating Tibullus' work at all points to the Hellenistic poetic tradition and the literary genres and conventions it developed. This book will be of particular interest to students of Latin and Hellenistic Greek literature, and, as all Greek is translated, it should also be useful to students of comparative literature.
