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.

264 Calder III, William M. ; R. Scott Smith (ed.) THEATROKRATIA Collected Papers on the Politics and Staging of Greco-Roman Tragedy
Georg Olms Verlag 2005 3487128551 / 9783487128559 Hardcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket Signed by Author
Gift inscription to W. J. Slater from Calder III to ffep. Very minor shelfwear. A couple of corrections in pen done in author's hand to 2 pages. ; The volume gathers for the first time thirty-five scattered articles by Calder published 1958-1998 concerned with the political content of selected tragedies and their staging from Thespis to Seneca. An historian seeks to see tragedies in context, whether Pericles’ Athens or Nero’s Rome. He regularly contests the opinio communis. Eumenides protests against Periclean reform. Zeus in Prometheus is the tyrant Demos. Kreon not Antigone is the hero of Antigone. Neoptolemos in Philoctetes is a clever deceiver from the start. Sophocles Oinomaos was the inspiration of the East Pediment at Olympia. Atreus in Seneca’s Thyestes is the model whom Nero is urged to follow. The usual size of the Senecan chorus was three, never fifteen. Thespis’ chorus was six. A careful index locorum antiquorum ends the volume and makes the material easily accessible. ; Spudasmata Band 104; 431 pages; Signed by Author

280 Carmignani, Marcos & Luca Graverini and Benjamin Todd Lee (Eds. ) COLLECTED STUDIES ON THE ROMAN NOVEL / ENSAYOS SOBRE LA NOVELA ROMANA
Editorial Brujas 2013 Softcover Very Good+ 
Minor shelfwear. Minor discoloration to front wrap. Else fine. ; The ancient novel no longer occupies a marginal position in the field of Classical studies. On the contrary, it is an area of research that is constantly expanding, thanks in part to the discovery of new papyri. But there is also a growing interest in so-called "fringe narratives" in their own right, and far more attention is being paid to Christian and Byzantine fiction, as well as to other points of contact between the ancient novel and traditions from outside the Greco-Roman world. The Roman novel, too, has recently garnered increased attention from scholars of ancient narrative; in addition to Petronius and Apuleius, both of whom are traditionally included in the canon of major Latin authors, we now include the late and anonymous novella known as the Historia Apollonii Regis Tyri. The present volume, which collects studies by renowned scholars from North America, South America, and Europe, offers varied approaches and multiple points of view on Latin narrative fiction; taken together, they provide rich insights into the whole of classical culture. ; Ordia Prima Studia, 7; 312 pages; Isbn: 9789875913899

289 Catullus, Gaius Valerius; Peter Green THE POEMS OF CATULLUS A Bilingual Edition. Translated, with Commentary
University of California Press 2005 0520242645 / 9780520242647 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). 1 page corner creased. Else book is fine. DJ has small tear (2 cm) else light shelfwear. ; Catullus, who lived during some of the most interesting and tumultuous years of the late Roman Republic, spent his short but intense life (? 84-54 B. C. E. ) in high Roman society, rubbing shoulders with various cultural and political luminaries, including Caesar, Cicero, and Pompey. Catullus's poetry is by turns ribald, lyric, romantic, satirical; sometimes obscene and always intelligent, it offers us vivid pictures of the poet's friends, enemies, and lovers. The verses to his friends are bitchy, funny, and affectionate; those to his enemies are often wonderfully nasty. Many poems brilliantly evoke his passionate affair with Lesbia, often identified as Clodia Metelli, a femme fatale ten years his senior and the smart, adulterous wife of an arrogant aristocrat. Cicero later claimed she poisoned her husband.; 360 pages

291 Catullus; David Mulroy THE COMPLETE POETRY OF CATULLUS Translated and with Commentary
University of Wisconsin Press 2002 0299177742 / 9780299177744 Paperback Very Good 
Pencil underlining and marginalia to some pages. Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). ; Catullus’ life was akin to pulp fiction. In Julius Caesar’s Rome, he engages in a stormy affair with a consul’s wife. He writes her passionate poems of love, hate, and jealousy. The consul, a vehement opponent of Caesar, dies under suspicious circumstances. The merry widow romances numerous young men. Catullus is drawn into politics and becomes a cocky critic of Caesar, writing poems that dub Julius a low-life pig and a pervert. Not surprisingly, soon after, no more is heard of Catullus. David Mulroy brings to life the witty, poignant, and brutally direct voice of a flesh-and-blood man, a young provincial in the Eternal City, reacting to real people and events in a Rome full of violent conflict among individuals marked by genius and megalomaniacal passions. Mulroy’s lively, rhythmic translations of the poems are enhanced by an introduction and commentary that provide biographical and bibliographical information about Catullus, a history of his times, a discussion of the translations, and definitions and notes that ease the way for anyone who is not a Latin scholar. ; Wisconsin Studies in Classics; 160 pages
