Virgil by R. D Williams( Book )

24 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A broad literary evaluation of the poet's major achievements, based on a selective consideration of recent critical studies, is presented in this booklet. An approach is developed in the analysis of the "Eclogues" as poems, the "Georgics", and the "Aeneid" which considers the underlying significance, moral values, and "tensions" between behavior and human environment in terms of recurrent imagery and symbolism, thematic connection, and continuity or opposition of tone.

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

81 editions published between 1937 and 2007 in English and German and held by 856 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

Tacitus' 'Annals' recounts the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus to the death of Nero in AD 68. Despite his claim that the 'Annals' were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of imperial Rome
