Scholar's name to half-title (Robert Brown). Else very faint shelfwear. ; Known for their fully drawn characters, artistic complexity, and a multifaceted engagement with social issues, the plays of Euripides inspire divergent critical views.

Readers will find both views in this collection of essays designed to help teachers present Euripides and his plays to today's students. ; Approaches to Teaching World Literature; 235 pages

426 Bruce, I. A. F. AN HISTORICAL COMMENTARY ON THE HELLENICA OXYRHYNCHIA

DJ has one small tear. Scholars' bookplate to inner cover. Light moisture damage to spine (slight rippling, light waterstaining). Light moisture damage to inside of DJ (colour stains and rippling). Top corners bumped. Inner pages unaffected by moisture. ; Cambridge Classical Studies; 190 pages; Commentaries on the Hellenica Oxyrhynchia, an anonymous history of events in the Greek world in the late fifth and early fourth centuries BC, have usually dealt almost entirely with problems of the text. In this book, Dr Bruce has written an historical commentary, basing his work on both the London and Florence papyri, which between them provide all the surviving fragments of the text. Dr Bruce begins with a brief description of the two papyri. He then discusses the Oxyrhynchus historian's style and method - his sources, chronology, bias, interest in causation, etc. The introduction ends with a résumé of the numerous theories of the author's identity (Dr Bruce favours either Cratippus or an author not known to us by name at all). The main part of the commentary is arranged in the form of notes on the sections of the Greek text, with occasional detailed notes on particular words or phrases. There are appendices on the Battle of Sardis and the Constitution of Boeotia; and the book concludes with a full biography. Dr Bruce's book is a complete guide available for further historical study of the Hellenica Oxyrhynchia.

435 Brunt, P. A. STUDIES IN GREEK HISTORY AND THOUGHT
Oxford University Press 1998 0198152426 / 9780198152422 Softcover Very Good+ 
Small tiny stain to back inner cover and endpaper. Very light edgewear else Fine. ; 424 pages; This is a collection of P. A. Brunt's writings on Greek history and thought--some previously published in journals and others unpublished until now. Subjects covered include Greek political history of the fifth century B. C. And ancient historiography--including an introduction to Thucydides designed for the more general reader, to which the author has now annexed a new study of Thucydides' funeral speech. Four essays concern the relationship between Greek philosophical thinking and social and political conditions, and of these, three, which constitute about a third of the volume, are new. Two examine the extent to which Plato and his pupils sought, or were able, to make any impact on the contemporary world, and the practicality of the model city in Plato's Laws; the third discusses Aristotle's theory of slavery in relation to the actual Greek institution and to other attempts to justify slavery as well as in the context of Aristotle's own ethical doctrines.

443 Burgess, Jonathan S. THE TRADITION OF THE TROJAN WAR IN HOMER AND THE EPIC CYCLE
Johns Hopkins University Press 2001 0801866529 / 9780801866524 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Some spotting to boards. Very light shelfwear to DJ. Dustjacket is protected in plastic sleeve. ; Although the Iliad and Odyssey narrate only relatively small portions of the Trojan War and its aftermath, for centuries these works have overshadowed other, more comprehensive narratives of the conflict, particularly the poems known as the Epic Cycle. In The Tradition of the Trojan War in Homer and the Epic Cycle, Jonathan Burgess challenges Homer's authority on the war's history and the legends surrounding it, placing the Iliad and Odyssey in the larger, often overlooked context of the entire body of Greek epic poetry of the Archaic Age. He traces the development and transmission of the Cyclic poems in ancient Greek culture, comparing them to later Homeric poems and finding that they were far more influential than has previously been thought. ; 320 pages

444 Burkert, Walter; (translated by Margaret E. Pinder & Walter Burkert) THE ORIENTALIZING REVOLUTION Near Eastern Influence on Greek Culture in the Early Archaic Age
Harvard University Press 1997 067464364X / 9780674643642 Softcover Very Good 
Former owner's name on ffep. ; Revealing Antiquity 5; 238 pages; The rich and splendid culture of the ancient Greeks has often been described as emerging like a miracle from a genius of its own, owing practically nothing to its neighbours. Walter Burkert offers an argument against that distorted view, pointing toward a balanced picture of the archaic period "in which, under the influence of the Semitic East, Greek culture began its unique flowering, soon to assume cultural hegemony, in the Mediterranean". Burkert focuses on the "orientalizing" century 750-650 B.C., the period of Assyrian conquest, Phoenician commerce, and Greek exploration of both East and West, when not only eastern skills and images but also the Semitic art of writing was transmitted to Greece. He tracks the migrant craftsmen who brought the Greeks new techniques and designs, the wandering seers and healers teaching magic and medicine, and the important Greek borrowings from Near Eastern poetry and myth. Drawing widey on archaeological, textual and historical evidence, he demonstrates that eastern models significantly affected Greek literature and religion in the Homeric age.

447 Burnett, Anne Pippin REVENGE IN ATTIC AND LATER TRAGEDY
University of California Press 1998 0520210964 / 9780520210967 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to DJ. ; Sather Classical Lectures; 1.12 x 9.25 x 6.25 Inches; 384 pages; Modern readings of ancient Athenian drama tend to view it as a presentation of social or moral problems, as if ancient drama showed the same realism seen on the present-day stage. Such views are belied by the plays themselves, in which supremely violent actions occur in a legendary time and place distinct both from reality and from the ethics of ordinary life. Offering fresh readings of Attic tragedy, Anne Pippin Burnett urges readers to peel away twentieth-century attitudes toward vengeance and reconsider the revenge tragedies of ancient Athens in their own context. After a consideration of how our view of Elizabethan drama has obscured an accurate view of the ancient tragedies, Burnett reviews early Greek notions of vengeance as expressed in the Odyssey, Heracles' tales, Pindar's odes, Attic judicial processes, and the legend of Harmodius and Aristogeiton. Then, setting aside post-Platonic and Judeo-Christian notions of criminality, she provides new interpretations of all the Attic tragedies in which revenge is a central theme: Aeschylus' Libation Bearers, Sophocles' Ajax, Electra, and Tereus, and Euripides' Children of Heracles, Hecuba, Medea, Electra, and Orestes. Burnett shows that for the ancients, revenge meant a redress of imbalances in both human and divine worlds, achieved through human actions. The vengeful heroines thus appear in a new light. Electra, Hecuba, Medea, and others cease to be the picture of depravity in dramas that are grotesque and sensational, and are instead representative human figures who respond with grandeur to the outsize demands of necessity and supernatural powers.

448 Burnett, Anne Pippin THE ART OF BACCHYLIDES
Harvard University Press 1985 0674046668 / 9780674046665 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing to top of textblock. Very light shelfwear to DJ with 1 tiny chip ; Martin Classical Lectures 29; 224 pages; Anne Burnett shows us the art of Bacchylides in the context of Greek lyric traditions. She discusses the beginnings of choral poetry and the functions of the choral myth; she describes the purposes of the victory song in particular and the practices of Bacchylides and Pindar as they fulfilled their victory commissions. In analyzing individual poems Burnett's approach is two-fold, for each ode is seen as a choral performance reflecting archaic cult practice, while it is also studied as the expression of a particular poetic vision and sensibility. Thus the formal elements of the Bacchylidean victory songs are recognized as the response of a chorus which must give semi-religious praise to a noble athlete or prize-winning prince in times of increasing democracy. At the same time an artistry and an ethic peculiar to Bacchylides are discovered in the manipulation of fictions and mythic materials.
