Most widely held works by Gesine Manuwald
Nero in opera : librettos as transformations of ancient sources by Gesine Manuwald( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book analyses the story of Nero and Octavia, as dramatically told in the pseudo-Senecan Octavia, and its transformations in (early) modern opera and related pieces of other performative genres. In a close examination of the libretto (and dramatic) texts, the impact of this fascinating story is shown from the beginning of historical opera. The volume is therefore of relevance to literary scholars as well as to readers interested in the history of opera."
Flavian epic interactions by Gesine Manuwald( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume on the three Flavian epic poets (Valerius Flaccus, Statius, Silius Italicus) for the first time critically engages with a unique set-up in Roman literary history: the survival of four epic poems from the same period. The interactions of these poems with each other and their contemporary context are explored by over 20 experts and emerging scholars. Together they offer new perspectives to the still increasing readership of Flavian epic poetry
Brill's companion to Valerius Flaccus by Mark Heerink( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brill's Companion to Valerius Flaccus is the first English-language survey on all key aspects of this Flavian poet. A team of international specialists offers both an account of the state of the art and new insights."
Roman drama and its contexts by Stavros A Frangoulidis( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman plays have been well studied individually (even including fragmentary or spurious ones more recently). However, they have not always been placed into their 'context', though plays (just like items in other literary genres) benefit from being seen in context. This edited collection aims to address this issue: it includes 33 contributions by an international team of scholars, discussing single plays or Roman dramatic genres (including comedy, tragedy and praetexta, from both the Republican and imperial periods) in contexts such as the literary tradition, the relationship to works in other literary genres, the historical and social situation, the intellectual background or the later reception. Overall, they offer a rich panorama of the role of Roman drama or individual plays in Roman society and literary history. The insights gained thereby will be of relevance to everyone interested in Roman drama or literature more generally, comparative literature or drama and theatre studies. This contextual approach has the potential of changing the way in which Roman drama is viewed
Roman republican theatre by Gesine Manuwald( )

25 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theatre flourished in the Roman Republic, from the tragedies of Ennius and Pacuvius to the comedies of Plautus and Terence and the mimes of Laberius. Yet apart from the surviving plays of Plautus and Terence the sources are fragmentary and difficult to interpret and contextualise. This book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive history of all aspects of the topic, incorporating recent findings and modern approaches. It discusses the origins of Roman drama and the historical, social and institutional backgrounds of all the dramatic genres to be found during the Republic (tragedy, praetexta, comedy, togata, Atellana, mime and pantomime). Possible general characteristics are identified, and attention is paid to the nature of and developments in the various genres. The clear structure and full bibliography also ensure that the book has value as a source of reference for all upper-level students and scholars of Latin literature and ancient drama"--Provided by publisher
Neo-Latin poetry in the British Isles by L. B. T Houghton( )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A well focused collection of case studies of sixteenth to eighteenth-century English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish neo-Latin poets by scholars from a variety of backgrounds, giving broad coverage to a high scholarly standard
Philippics by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We know more of Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BCE), lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, than of any other Roman. Besides much else, his work conveys the turmoil of his time, and the part he played in a period that saw the rise and fall of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic
Fragmentary Republican Latin by Quintus Ennius( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quintus Ennius (239-169 BC), widely regarded as the father of Roman literature, was instrumental in creating a new Roman literary identity and inspired major developments in Roman religion, social organization, and popular culture. Brought in 204 to Rome in the entourage of Cato, Ennius took up residence on the Aventine and, fluent in his native Oscan as well as Greek and Latin, became one of the first teachers to introduce Greek learning to Romans through public readings of Greek and Latin texts. Best known for domesticating Greek epic and drama, Ennius also pursued a wide range of literary endeavors and found success in almost all of them. His tragedies were long regarded as classics of the genre, and his Annals gave Roman epic its canonical shape and pioneered many of its most characteristic features. Other works included philosophical works in prose and verse, epigrams, didactic poems, dramas on Roman themes (praetextae), and occasional poetry that informed the later development of satire. This two-volume edition of Ennius, which inaugurates the Loeb series Fragmentary Republican Latin, replaces that of Warmington in Remains of Old Latin, Volume I and offers fresh texts, translations, and annotation that are fully current with modern scholarship."--Publisher's description

Cicero by Gesine Manuwald( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BCE) introduced Romans to the major schools of Greek philosophy, forging a Latin conceptual vocabulary that was entirely new. But for all the sophistication of his thinking, it is perhaps for his political and oratorical career that Cicero is best remembered. He was the nemesis of Catiline, whose plot to overthrow the Republic he famously denounced to the Senate. He was the selfless Consul who turned down the opportunity to join Julius Caesar and Pompey in their ruling triumvirate with Crassus. He was briefly Rome's leading man after Caesar's assassination in 44 BCE. And he was the indecisive schemer whose personal ambitions and bitter rivalry with Mark Antony led to his own violent death in 43 BCE as an enemy of the state. In her authoritative survey, Gesine Manuwald evokes the many faces of Cicero, as well as his complexities and seeming contradictions. She focuses on his major writings, allowing the great rhetorician to speak for himself. Cicero's rich legacy is seen to endure in the works of Plutarch and Quintilian as well as in the speeches of Winston Churchill and Barack Obama"--Provided by publisher
Roman drama : a reader by Gesine Manuwald( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman drama is a genre of Latin literature that was influential both in the cultural life of the ancient Romans and in the European theatre tradition. Plays of Plautus, Terence and Seneca are still very well known today; yet there were numerous works by other poets besides, though they survive only in fragmentary form. On the basis of a selection of paradigmatic sample texts by a number of Roman dramatists, this anthology provides a stimulating overview of the entire literary genre, including its various subtypes (tragedy, praetexta, comedy, togata, mime) and its historical development. To make these texts accessible to a wide readership, new English translations (on facing pages) as well as introductions to the individual excerpts and to the general context have been included. A selection of relevant testimonia provides information about the cultural background to Roman drama and ancient views on this literary genre. Paradigmatic extracts from dramas written in England between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries illustrate the continuing influence of Roman plays. Thus this anthology conveniently documents the history of an interesting and exciting literary genre from its beginnings to the modern period. --Back Cover
Pacuvius, summus tragicus poeta : zum dramatischen Profil seiner Tragödien by Gesine Manuwald( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in German and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: "L'ensemble de ce livre est riche, bien documenté, intéressant dans son argumentaire. L'ouvrage compte de ce fait parmi les outils de référence scientifique dont l'éditeur et le commentateur de fragments feront le meilleur usage."Jacqueline Dangel in: Revue des Etudes Latines 2008 " ... ce livre, clair et bien structuré, constitue une contribution importante à l'étude de la littérature latine archaïque."L'ANTIQUE CLASSIQUE, Villers-la-Ville, Nr. 74, 2005 "Cette étude comporte ... une très bonne contribution à la connaisance de la tragédie républicaine. ... ce livre apparâit comme une synthèse heureuse des recherches sur Pacuvius et son génie particulier et comme une étude savamment avec nuance et prudence." Gnomon, München, Nr. 8, 2004 " ... this book is an important contribution to the study of archaic Roman literature. Being clearly structured and well-ordered, it shows that even a collection of apparently scattered poetic fragments does permit literary analysis to a certain extent, if the texts are approached with caution, common sense, and good questions. ... M[anuwald]'s research is based on a thorough analysis of the texts themselves and all relevant secondary literature, and the ensuing portrait of Pacuvius is convincing indeed. ... This monograph makes us long to read the original texts, a desire that will have to remain unfulfilled. M. is not to blame here, of course. Quite the reverse: she deserves great praise."
