502 Citti, Francesco & Alessandro Iannucci (A Cura Di) EDIPO CLASSICO E CONTEMPORANEO
Georg Olms Verlag 2012 3487148722 / 9783487148724 Paperback Fine with no dust jacket 
Book is fine. ; Classici sono quei testi capaci di originare riscritture e riconoscibili come modelli di altre espressioni letterarie o artistiche. Questo fenomeno di geminazione è particolarmente vistoso per l’Edipo re di Sofocle e l’Edipo di Seneca la cui ricezione è un labirinto fitto e mutevole, ricco di contaminazioni e di reticoli intertestuali in cui lo stesso esercizio critico entra a far parte del processo di riscrittura. Il volume comprende 19 contributi: un ampio saggio introduttivo su alcuni particolari temi e morfemi del mito, lungo tutta la sua tradizione; 6 contributi dedicati ai due testi antichi, fondativi della tradizione edipica; ed infine 12 capitoli incentrati sull'analisi - senza pretese di esaustività - delle diverse tradizioni letterarie, teatrali, visive e cinematografiche della fortuna di Edipo, lungo una dimensione cronologica e geografica che muove dalle prime riprese nella cultura europea dei secoli XVI e XVII, fino alla contemporaneità. In chiusura la testimonianza di Edoardo Sanguineti, straordinario interprete del teatro classico, e dei classici più in generale, che ha tradotto a suo modo un Edipo tiranno, messo in scena nel 1980 da Benno Besson. ; Spudasmata Band 149; 450 pages

506 Classen, Carl Joachim (Hrsg. ) PROBLEME DER LUKREZFORSCHUNG
G. Olms 1986 3487076608 / 9783487076607 Softcover Good 
Minor Creasing to corners. Scholar's blindstamp and name to ffep (Robert Brown). Light crease to spine. Textblock is broken between pp 130-131. ; The Roman poet Lucretius, who lived in the first century BC, composed an epic poem, De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of the Universe) , whose avowed purpose was to change the way we live our lives, to abandon our fear of the gods and of death, and to see what real happiness is and how to obtain it. The poem explains the atomic nature of the world and our own place in it, examining the microscopic world of atoms and the telescopic world of the universe, as well as human life in all its facets - politics, pleasure, the nature of perception, our dreams and sexual behaviour. Here John Godwin explains Lucretius' great poem in its Roman context, assessing the literary and philosophical value of the poems and arguing the merits of the poet's claim to change our lives. Lucretius is seen as a writer for our time, offering us a text of enormous beauty and artistry which will help us find happiness and serenity in a turbulent world. ; Olms Studien Band 18; 438 pages

507 Claudian; Hall, J. B. CLAUDIAN: DE RAPTU PROSERPINAE Edited with an Introduction and Commentary
Cambridge University Press 1970 0521074428 / 9780521074421 Hardcover Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
DJ is price-clipped else Fine. Dustjacket is protected in plastic. ; Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries 11; 262 pages; An exhaustive study of Claudian's unfinished mythological epic, with a text, apparatus criticus, and commentary. The long introduction begins with a catalogue of manuscripts; and this leads to an investigation into the manuscript tradition and the history of the poem's transmission. Dr Hall then surveys the most important printed editions of the poem. He examines various theories of dating and discusses the sources of the story. He concludes the introduction with a brief critical assessment of the form and style of the poem. Dr Hall establishes his text after an examination of all the extant manuscripts. The apparatus, though very full, is selective in that it records readings of younger manuscripts only when they offer something new. It also ignores trifling corruptions. The commentary is similarly selective. In general, it discusses everything relevant to the establishing of the text and ignores points of purely mythological and literary interest.

510 Claudian; Maurice Platnauer CLAUDIAN Volume I
William Heinemann & Harvard University Press 1956 0674991508 / 9780674991507 Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Light pencilling to a few pages. Corners a bit rounded. ; Loeb Classical Library; Vol. 1; 393 pages; Claudius Claudianus, Latin poet of great affairs, flourished during the joint reigns (394–5 CE onwards) of the brothers Honorius (Emperor in the West) and Arcadius (in the East). Apparently a native of Greek Alexandria in Egypt, he was, to judge by his name, of Roman descent, though his first writings were in Greek, and his pure Latin may have been learned by him as a foreign language. About 395 CE he moved to Italy (Milan and Rome) and though really a pagan, became a professional court-poet composing for Christian rulers works which give us important knowledge of Honorius's time. A panegyric on the brothers Probinus and Olybrius (consuls together in 395) was followed during ten years by other poems (mostly epics in hexameters) : in praise of consulships of Honorius (395, 398, 404 CE) ; against the Byzantine ministers Rufinus (396) and Eutropius (399) ; in praise of the consulship (400) of Stilicho (Honorius's guardian, general, and minister) ; in praise of Stilicho's wife Serena; mixed metres on the marriage of Honorius to their daughter Maria; on the war with the rebel Gildo in Africa (398) ; on the Getic or Gothic war (402) ; on Stilicho's success against the Goth Alaric (403) ; on the consulship of Manlius Theodorus (399) ; and on the wedding of Palladius and Celerina. Less important are non-official poems such as the three books of a mythological epic on the Rape of Proserpina, unfinished as was also a Battle of Giants (in Greek). Noteworthy are Phoenix, Senex Veronensis, elegiac prefaces, and the epistles, epigrams, and idylls. Through the patronage of Stilicho or through Serena, Claudius in 404 married well in Africa and was granted a statue in Rome. Nothing is known of him after 404. In his poetry are true poetic as well as rhetorical skill, command of language, polished style, diversity, vigour, satire, dignity, bombast, artificiality, flattery, and other virtues and faults of the earlier 'silver' age in Latin.

515 Clemoes, Peter ANGLO-SAXON ENGLAND 12
Cambridge University Press 1986 0521332028 / 9780521332026 Hardcover Very Good- with no dust jacket

Bumping to bottom and top of spine. Former price on fly-page has been whited-out. Ask for pictures! ; Four very different kinds of Anglo-Saxon thinking are clarified in this volume - traditions, learned and oral, about the settlement of the country, study of foreign-language grammar, interest in exotic jewels as reflections of the glory of God, and (surprisingly, no doubt, to some) a mainly rational attitude to medicine. Publication of no less than three recent discoveries augments our corpus of manuscript evidence. The nature of Old English poetry is illuminated - as a variety of oral expression and as exemplified in a particular poet's treatment of a particular Latin source. A useful summary of the present state of editorial treatment of textual properties in Beowulf is provided. As usual the concluding item is a systematic bibliography of recent work in all branches of Anglo-Saxon studies - this time the publications of 1982.; Anglo-Saxon England; Vol. 12; 0.94 x 9 x 6 Inches; 345 pages

520 Coffey, Michael ROMAN SATIRE
Methuen & Company / Barnes & Noble 1976 0416851207 / 9780416851205 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to front pastedown (G. P. Goold). Minor shelfwear to book. DJ has minor edgewear with creasing. ; Alternate ISBN: 0064712516; 289 pages; This study appraises the work of all the Roman satirists, from the 2nd century BC, to the end of the reign of Hadrian in AD 138. The satirists' work is shown to reflect the constantly changing society in which they lived, and its topics range from the morally earnest to the bawdy. Certain themes are examined which are common to some degree to all the satirists -- autobiographical revelation, personal invective, political and ethical judgements and literary criticism. The book provides an exposition of the tradition of verse satire from Lucilius through Horace and Persius to Juvenal, with an assessment of the structure and distinctive literary quality of each satire. It discusses satire in the Menippean tradition, a composite form of prose and verse which was used first by Varro, then by Petronius and by Seneca in his "Apocolocyntosis", a comical and malicious satire on the deification of the emperor Claudius.

Reveals how certain strategic metaphors embedded in the early Western literary canon have promoted--and continue to promote--systems of inequality and social control. Collins examines texts ranging from the Homeric epics and the Platonic dialogues to Virgil's "Aeneid" and the "Book of Revelation". Drawing on the linguistic and documentary evidence of usages in early societies, chiefly Greek and Hebrew, Collins has produced a penetrating examination of social and personal structures in those worlds. ; 9.5 x 0.75 x 6.5 Inches; 196 pages

539 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

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.
