VIRGIL (Publius Vergilius Maro), greatest of Roman poets, was a countryman's son born in 70 B.C. at Andes near Mantua and was educated at Verona, Milan and Rome. Slow in speech, shy in manner, thoughtful in mind, weak in health, he went back to northern Italy for a quiet life. Influenced by the group of poets there, he may have written some of the doubtful poems included in our Virgilian manuscripts. All his undoubted extant work is written in his perfect hexameters. Earliest comes the collection of ten pleasingly artificial bucolic poems the Eclogues, which imitated freely Theocritus' idylls. They deal with the pastoral life and love, but allude also to Virgil's (temporary?) loss of his home by confiscation. Most famous is the mysterious fourth eclogue anticipating a return to the Golden Age. Before 29 B.C. came one of the best of all didactic works, the four books of Georgics on tillage, trees, cattle, bees - a splendid product of a countryman-poet. Virgil's remaining years were spent in composing his great, now wholly finished, epic the Aeneid, inspired by the Emperor Augustus' rule: if not by Augustus himself, on the traditional theme of Rome's origins through Aeneas of Troy - a poem Homeric in metre and method but influenced by later Greek and Roman literature, philosophy and learning; and deeply Roman in spirit, in feeling national not personal. Virgil died in Greece in 19 B.C., intending to round off the Aeneid. He had left in Rome a request that all its twelve books should be destroyed if he were to die then, but they were published by the executors of his will

A history of cynicism from Diogenes to the 6th century A.D by Donald R Dudley( Book )

84 editions published between 1937 and 2007 in English and German and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a general introduction to the Hellenistic philosophy of Cynicism. To the student of ancient philosophy Cynicism may seem little more than a debased version of the ethics of Socrates, which exaggerates his austerity to a fanatic asceticism, hardens his irony to sardonic laughter at the follies of mankind, and affords no parallel to his love of knowledge. Diogenes was 'Socrates gone mad'. On the other hand, for the student of ancient social history and thought from the 4th century BC to the close of antiquity, and even beyond, the mind-set of cynicism is still a constant or ever-recurring theme. Dudley's monograph on ancient Cynicism, although published in 1937, remains a standard work, indeed the only book-length treatment of the subject in English. There has been a considerable amount of recent work on Hellenistic philosophy and on Cynicism in particular - articles and collected essays - but nothing that replaces the overview of Dudley, whose book is described by the editors of the most recent collection as 'the best general introduction in English'."--Bloomsbury Publishing
