The ideology of classicism : language, history, and identity in Dionysius of Halicarnassus by Nicolas Wiater( )

20 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"So far, the critical writings of Dionysius of Halicarnassus have mainly attracted interest from historians of ancient linguistics. The Ideology of Classicism proposes a novel approach to Dionysius' œuvre as a whole by providing the first systematic study of Greek classicism from the perspective of cultural identity. Drawing on cultural anthropology and Social Identity Theory, Wiater explores the world-view bound up with classicist criticism. Only from within this ideological framework can we understand why Greek and Roman intellectuals in Augustan Rome strove to speak and write like Demosthenes, Lysias, and Isocrates. Topics addressed by this study include Dionysius' view of the classical past; mimesis and the aesthetics of reading; language and identity; Dionysius' view of the Romans, their power and the role of Greek culture within it; Greek classicism and the contemporary controversy about Roman identity among Roman intellectuals; the self-image as Greek intellectuals in the Roman empire of Dionysius and his addressees; the dialogic design of Dionysius' essays and how it implements a sense of elitism and distinction; Dionysius' attitudes towards communities competing with him for leadership in rhetorical education and criticism, such as the Peripatetics and Stoics."--Publisher's website
The struggle for identity : Greeks and their past in the first century BCE by Nicolas Wiater( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first century BCE, Greek intellectuals had to come to terms with the stability of Roman power. Many of them were active in Rome, which became the cultural centre of the Greek world; others were connected with Roman patrons. Their work became important for the emergence of Greek identity in the Roman Empire. Bringing together an international group of leading Classical scholars, this volume represents the first attempt at a comprehensive study of Greek cultural identity in the first century: how did the Romans influence the Greeks' view(s) of themselves and of their classical heritage How did the Greeks interpret the Romans and their role in the world Covering such different genres as historiography, literary criticism, the novel, and epigram, as well as archaeological material, the contributions explore the intellectual diversity of one of the most significant periods in history and situate the authors active under Augustus within their broader intellectual-historical context

Die international gelobte, flüssige und bisweilen packend zu lesende Übersetzung der Römischen Frühgeschichte des Dionysius von Halikarnassos wird mit dem 2. Band fortgesetzt, der die Bücher 4 bis 6 umfasst. Diese Bücher führen uns direkt in die Zeit des Niedergangs der Königsherrschaft unter dem Tyrannen Tarquinius Superbus und in den Beginn der römischen res publica, der ins Werk gesetzt wurde durch die Verschwörung führender Mitglieder der Oberschicht unter Lucius Iunius Brutus nach der Vergewaltigung Lucretias durch Sextus Tarquinius. Das 6. Buch schließt ab mit der ersten Phase des römischen Kampfes mit den Latinern um die Vorherrschaft in Italien (dem foedus Cassianum) sowie des politisch-rhetorisch aufgeladenen Ständekampfes und der Ernennung der ersten Volkstribunen. Eine dichte Kommentierung philologischer, erzähltechnischer und historischer Aspekte des Werkes sowie ein Personen-, Namen- und Sachregister erschließen den Text der Bücher in ihrem historischen Kontext und Quellenwert für die Forschung
