The six essays presented in this volume explore the political themes in the work of major poets such as Virgil, Ovid, Horace and Propertius. Using traditional as well as post-structuralist approaches, the essays examine the controversies of the Civil Wars, the emerging issues of treason and free speech and changing representations of Cleopatra and female power. ; 192 pages

4 Powell, Anton & Kathryn Welch (Eds. ) SEXTUS POMPEIUS
The Classical Press of Wales and Duckworth 2002 0715631276 / 9780715631270 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
1 corner lightly bumped else fine. Book has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Classical Press of Wales; 200 pages; The son of Pompey the Great cast a long shadow. Acclaimed by the Roman populace in his lifetime, his traditional virtues and military successes put to shame his civil war rival Octavian. After his death, he was passionately and safely abused by Octavian and poets as a marginal nuisance, a pirate. The image of a `second rank' figure has been propagated into modern times by Syme and Zanker, but extensive ancient evidence makes possible a very different story. Here seven new studies from an international cast reconstruct a figure whose actions and image shaped not just the civil war period but also the character of the early principate.

6 Powell, Anton & Stephen Hodkinson THE SHADOW OF SPARTA
Routledge / Classical Press of Wales 1994 0415104130 / 9780415104135 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
408 pages; The past 20 years have witnessed a revival of interest in the study of Sparta. The early 20th-century images of Spartans as hearty good fellows or scarlet-cloaked automata, have been superceded by more complex scholarly interpretations of this obscure civilization. The mystery surrounding Sparta has been instrumental in shaping scholarship on the subject. Historians have taken as much interest in the myths and disinformation attached to Sparta as they have in the truth about their city-state. The studies in this volume provide insights into the traditional question of what actually happened at Sparta. Yet the implications of this work go far beyond Laconia to focus on some of the most studied of Greek writers, showing how Athenians defined the achievement, or the failure, of their own city.
