1 Anderson, William S. BARBARIAN PLAY Plautus' Roman Comedy
University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 1996 0802079415 / 9780802079411 Softcover Very Good 
Faint creasing to spine. Light shelfwear. Scholar's name to half-title (Robert Brown). ; In this volume William S. Anderson sets Plautus, who wrote Rome's earliest surviving poetry, in his rightful place among the Greek and Roman writers of what we know as New Comedy (fourth to second centuries). Anderson begins by defining major innovations that Plautus made on inherited Greek New Comedy (Menander, Philemon, and Diphilus) , transforming it from romantic domestic drama to a celebration of rollicking family anarchy. He shows how Plautus diminished the traditional importance of love and replaced it with a new major theme: 'heroic badness,' especially embodied in the rogue slave (ancestor of the impudent servant, valet, or maid). Anderson then examines the unique verbal texture of Plautus' drama and demonstrates his revolt against realism, his drive to have his characters defy everyday circumstances and pit their intrepid linguistic wit against social order, their Roman extravagant impudence against Greek self-control. Finally, Anderson explores the special form of metatheatre that we admire in Plautus, by which he undermines the assumptions of his Greek models' and replaces them with a new, confident Roman comedy. ; Robson Classical Lectures; 194 pages

4 Horace; Jacob Fuchs & William S. Anderson (Intro. ) HORACE'S SATIRES AND EPISTLES
W. W. Norton & Company 1977 0393090930 / 9780393090932 Softcover Very Good 
Light shelfwear. Light yellowing and faint creasing to rear wrap. ; 128 pages; Early in his life, and again in maturity, Horace sought to turn his poetic skills to the uses of moral and aesthetic discussion in the series of didactic works translated here. In the Satires, Horace adopts one persona after another, each of which reduces himself to absurdity in the process of trying to argue a point of view about the ethical or artistic life. The form of the Epistles permits Horace to write with particular intimacy, addressing moral issues in a persuasive yet informal way. The third epistle, The Art of Poetry, on the other hand, is a formal poem addressed to the emperor Augustus, and seeks to educate the poetic taste of the ruler of the western world.

7 Ovid; William S. Anderson OVID'S METAMORPHOSES BOOKS 6-10 Edited with Introduction and Commentary
University of Oklahoma Press 1972 0806109602 / 9780806109602 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket 
Light foxing to textblock. DJ has some foxing and 1 small tear. Minor chipping to DJ. DJ spine sunned. ; Ovid is a poet to enjoy, declares William S. Anderson in his introduction to this textbook. And Anderson’s skillful introduction and enlightening textual commentary will indeed make it a joy to use. In these books Ovid begins to leave the conflict between men and the gods to concentrate on the relations among human beings. Subjects of the stories include Arachne and Niobe; Tereus, Procne, and Philomela; Medea and Jason; Orpheus and Eurydice; and many others, familiar and unfamiliar. For students of Latin-and teachers, too-they provide an interesting experience. In his introduction the editor discusses Ovid’s career, the reputation of the Metamorphoses during Ovid’s time and after, and the various manuscripts that exist or have been known to exist. He describes the general plan of the poem, its main theme, and the problem of its tone. Technical matters, such as style and meter, are also considered. In notes the editor summarizes the story being told before proceeding to the line-by-line textual comments. ; American Philological Association Series of Classical Texts; 584 pages
