451 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.

470 Buxton, R. G. A. PERSUASION IN GREEK TRAGEDY A Study of Peitho
Cambridge University Press 1983 0521241804 / 9780521241809 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's name to half-title (Martin Cropp). Upper corners a little bumped. Light rubbing to boards. DJ has chipping to corners and spine ends. DJ spine is sunned and discolored. ; One of the difficulties in appreciating the literature of a foreign culture, and even more that of an ancient one, is to be sensitive to the overtones that certain concepts held for the original audience. A distinctive feature of Greek culture was an awareness of the power of words, and an interest in the interrelationships between persuasion (peitho) , deception and violence. These issues figured with some prominence in Greek plays. Dr Buxton maintains that certain aspects of classical tragedy become clearer if we recognise what peitho meant to the Greeks. In the first part of his book, he attempts to 'excavate' the concept of peitho, uncovering its various associations in different areas of experience - politics, rhetoric, love, morality and philosophy. Armed with what he has discovered, he turns in the second part to an analysis of selected plays by Aischylos, Sophokles and Euripides in which persuasion plays a major role. ; 260 pages

483 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

495 Cameron, Alan CALLIMACHUS AND HIS CRITICS
Princeton University Press 1995 0691043671 / 9780691043678 Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book has very light shelfwear. Else fine. DJ has very minor shelfwear. ; Callimachus has usually been seen as the archetypal ivory-tower poet, the epitome if not the inventor of the concept of art for art's sake, author of erudite works written to be read in book form by fellow poets and scholars. However, there is much evidence to suggest a different story: a world of civic festivals rather than books and libraries, a world in which poetry and poets played a central and public role. In the course of the argument, Cameron casts fresh light on the lives, dates, works and inter-relationships of most of the other leading poets of the age. Another axiom of modern scholarship is that the object of Callimachus's literary polemic was epic. Yet Cameron aims to show that the thriving school of epic poets celebrating the wars of Hellenistic kings that has so dominated modern study never existed. Elegy was the fashionable genre of the age and the bone of contention between Callimachus and his rivals (all fellow elegists) was the nature of elegaic narrative. A final chapter sketches some of the implications of this revised view of Callimachus and his world for the interpretation of Roman, especially Augustan, poetry. ; 533 pages
