Book is fine. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; The quality as well as the historical importance of the flourishing bilingual literature of the second century AD is increasingly recognised. This volume collects together eight papers which offer a wide view of the intellectual and literary world of the Antonines, both Greek and Latin. There are special studies on Plutarch's Lives -- C B R Pelling; Lucian's Prologues-- H. -G. Nesselrath; Aristides' Hymns-- D. A. Russell; and Apuleius' Cupid and Psyche-- E. J. Kenney. The relationship between the two literary languages is an important theme of the introductory paper and there are also essays on the neglected topic of Greek poetry of the period--E. L. Bowie, on the definition of the Second Sophistic-- G. Anderson, and on the influence of Plato's Phaedrus-- M. B. Trapp in this period. There is a full bibliography and a brief table of important dates. ; 0.94 x 8.74 x 5.9 Inches; 260 pages
