The Roman novel. The 'Satyricon' of Petronius and the 'Metamorphoses' of Apuleius by P. G Walsh( Book )

35 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Satyricon' of Petronius and the 'Metamorphoses' (or 'The Golden Ass') of Apuleius are the only novels written at Rome before AD 200 to have survived. The genre is the comic romance, the literature of relaxation in the ancient world. This study defines the genre and sets it in the context of other forms of fiction of the period. It shows that both Petronius and Apuleius introduced important innovations into the traditional comic romance. A critical study of 'The Satyricon' is included, with a separate chapter on Trimalchio's feast, a central comic episode of the book. 'The Golden Ass' is similarly examined, again with special analysis of its centre piece, the story of Cupid and Psyche. The book assesses the later influence of the two novels on the mainstream of European picaresque fiction."--Bloomsbury Publishing

The Satyricon by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satyricon is the most celebrated work of fiction to have survived from the ancient world. It can be described as the first realistic novel, the father of the picaresque genre. It recounts the sleazy progress of a pair of literate scholars as they wander through the cites of the southern Mediterranean, encountering en route type-figures whom the author wishes to satirize - a teacher in higher education, a libidinous priest, a vulgar freedman turned millionaire, a manic poet, a superstitious sea-captain, a femme fatale. The novel has fascinated the literary world of Europe ever since, evoking praise for its elegant and hilarious description of the underside of Roman society, but also condemnation for some of its lubricous subjects; most recently it formed the subject of Fellini's controversial film
The consolation of philosophy by Boethius( Book )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 588 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The circumstances of composition, the heroic demeanour of the author, and the 'Menippean' texture of part prose, part verse (Boethius was a considerable poet) have combined to exercise a fascination over students of philosophy and literature ever since. The book should therefore prove to be of value to students and scholars of classics, philosophy, and religion as well as to more general readers

Love lyrics from the Carmina Burana by P. G Walsh( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and Latin and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carmina Burana is the finest surviving collection of medieval Latin lyrics, especially love lyrics. These poems - many of them composed to be sung - are mostly the work of teachers and students in the schools of the twelfth century. They vary in subject and style, and in addition to love lyrics, they include drinking songs, religious poems, pastoral lyrics, and satires of church and government. This anthology contains sixty love lyrics from the Carmina Burana in the original Latin, with prose translations and commentaries by noted Latinist P.G. Walsh. In his commentaries, Walsh explains postclassical aspects of morphology, spelling, vocabulary, and syntax and provides a well-informed analysis of literary antecedents and techniques. The book will be valuable for Latin students and in courses in medieval literature and history, comparative literature, and English literature

De officiis : lateinisch-deutsch = Vom pflichtgemässen Handeln by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Cicero wrote On Obligations (De Officiis) in late 44 BC after the assassination of Julius Caesar to provide principles of behavior for aspiring politicians. It has subsequently played a seminal role in the formation of ethical values in western Christendom. Adopted by the fourth-century Christian humanists, it became transmuted into the moral code of the high Middle Ages. Thereafter, in the Renaissance from the time of Petrarch, and in the Age of Enlightenment that followed, it was given central prominence in discussion of the government of states. Today, when corruption and conflict in political life are the focus of so much public attention, On Obligations is still the foremost guide to good conduct. This new edition is based on a more systematic examination of the vast manuscript tradition than has previously been attempted, and shows with new clarity the major contribution to the improvement of the text made by scribes and readers of the later manuscripts, both in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance."--Descripción del editor
