506 Conte, Gian Biagio THE HIDDEN AUTHOR An Interpretation of Petronius's Satyricon
University of California Press 1997 0520207157 / 9780520207158 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Paperclip indent to first 2 pages. Else book is fine. DJ has very minor shelfwear. ; The Satyricon of Petronius, a comic novel written in the first century A. D. , is famous today primarily for its amazing banquet tale, "Trimalchio's Feast." But this episode is only one part of the larger picture of life during Nero's rule presented in the work. In this accessible discussion of Petronius's masterful use of parody, Gian Biagio Conte offers an interpretation of the Satyricon as a whole. He combines the scholarly precision of close reading with a significant, original theoretical model. At the heart of his interpretation, Conte reveals the technique of the "hidden author" that Petronius employs at the expense of his characters, in particular the teller of the story, Enclopius. By remaining hidden outside the narrative, Petronius invites the reader to smile at the folies de grandeur that occur in a culture of scholars and declaimers. Yet as Conte shows, behind the parody and inexhaustible humor of the Satyricon lies an unexpectedly serious lament. For those familiar with the Satyricon, as well as for new readers, Conte's book will be a reliable, enjoyable guide to the wonders the Satyricon contains. ; Sather Classical Lectures 60; 224 pages

510 Conte, Gian Biagio & S. J. Harrison (edited by) THE POETRY OF PATHOS Studies in Virgilian Epic
Oxford University Press 2007 0199287015 / 9780199287017 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to book else fine. Minor shelfwear to DJ with slight crease to front DJ flap. ; This volume presents a collection of pieces from a celebrated world-class scholar and interpreter of Latin poetry, focusing on the interpretation of Virgil's Aeneid. It forms the sequel to two widely influential earlier books on Virgil by the same author and translates and adds to a collection of papers published in Italian in 2002. Its central concern is the way in which Virgil reworks earlier poetry (especially that of Homer) at the most detailed level to produce very broad literary and emotional effects. Gian Biagio Conte explores a central issue in Virgilian studies, that of how the Aeneid manages to create a new and effective mode of epic in a period when the genre appears to be debased or exhausted. ; 240 pages

513 Corcoran, Simon THE EMPIRE OF THE TETRARCHS Imperial Pronouncements and Government AD 284-324
Oxford University Press 2000 019815304X / 9780198153047 Softcover Very Good 
Bump to top corner of books. Minor rubbing to wraps. Light lifting of corners. ; Revised Paperback Edition. ; Oxford Classical Monographs; 1.11 x 8.74 x 5.7 Inches; 424 pages; The era of Diocletan and Constantine is a significant period for the Roman empire, with far-reaching administrative changes that established the structure of government for three hundred years - a time when the Christian church passed from persecution to imperial favour. It is also a complex period of co-operation and rivalry between a number of co-emperors, the result of Diocletian's experiment of government by four rulers (the tetrarchs). This book examines imperial government at this crucial but often neglected period of transition, through a study of the the pronouncement that the emperors and their officials produced, drawing together material from a wide variety of sources: the law codes, Christian authors, inscritpions, and papyri. The study covers the format, composition, and promulgation of documents, and includes chronological catalogues of imperial letters and edicts, as well as extended discussions of the Gregorian and Hermogenian Codes, and the ambitious Prices Edict. Much of this has had little detailed coverage in English before. There is also a chapter that elucidates the relative powers of the members of the imperial college. Finally, Dr Corcoran assesses how effectively the machinery of government really matched the ambitions of the emperors.

541 Crump, M. Marjorie THE EPYLLION FROM THEOCRITUS TO OVID
Garland Publishing 1978 0824029666 / 9780824029661 Softcover Fine 
Reprint of 1931 edition. ; The Garland Library of Latin Poetry; 12mo 7" - 7½" tall; 284 pages; "Epyllion" is the term coined by modern scholars for a relatively short poem on a mythological theme otherwise appropriate to longer epic. One of its recurrent characteristics is "ekphrasis", the telling of one myth encapsulated within the context of another, and the two thematically or symbolically linked to offer subtle comparison and contrast. The most persistent modes of "ekphrasis" are narrative by a character form, or the description of myth depicted on a work of art used in the context of the "outer" myth. The phenomenon has its origins in Homeric epic (the shield of Achilles) but was refined in the Hellenistic period by Callimachus and Theocritus, and taken up by the neoterics (Catullus 64). Its methods were absorbed back into long epic and form a dominant characteristic of Ovid's interweaving of myths in the "Metamorphoses". This book was originally published in 1931, and presents a chronological account of "epyllion" in English.
