Sophocles by Sophocles( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophocles with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm - but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. -- Jacket
Terence, the comedies by Terence( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1992 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terence's engaging portrayals of the "generation gap" and other timeless subjects conquered an unruly Roman populace--and, in these translations, will captivate modern readers
Selected epigrams by Martial( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite his enduring popularity, Martial has recently suffered from serious critical neglect. The present work is the first edition of selections from Martial to be published for decades, and the first ever to include a fully representative selection of the oeuvre of the poet, who has often been criticised, unfairly, the authors argue, for obscenity and flattery of the Emperor Domitian. The epigrams included in the selection are organised under various heads, e.g. Martial and poetry, sexual mores, satirical pieces. A very full introduction deals with such topics as the prejudices and predilections of his audience which conditioned Martial's choice of subject matter, Martial's language, the structure and style of the epigrams, the epigrammatic tradition and Martial's creative engagement with it. The detailed commentary is suitable for use with undergraduates and is distinguished by its focus on social history as well as literary interpretation
Menander by Menander( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers and students will find that this edition remains loyal to the Greek originals without confining itself to the literalism that has made many previous translations unusable in the classroom and inaccessible to general readers. These translations promise to become the standard for decades to come, introducing readers to the timelessness of the human experience brilliantly depicted in classical Greek drama

3 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine orations, and the dream of Scipio by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

2 editions published between 1967 and 1988 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi is one of Plautus' liveliest and most entertaining comedies, the main inspiration for Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Dr Gratwick's edition brings new light to bear on the interpretation of the play and on Plautus' place in the development of European comedy. Central to his treatment is the fact that Plautus was a dramatist who wrote to be heard rather than to be read. The various metres which he subtly and flexibly exploited for musical and dramatic effect are here explained in a way that challenges many received views but also offers the student practical assistance in grappling with the technical problems involved both on paper and in performance. The text has been newly constituted on the basis of a complete reappraisal of the manuscript tradition in the light of scholarship since the Renaissance. In preparing this edition Dr Gratwick has had in mind the needs of university students, but classical scholars in general will find much of importance to them

Aristophanes by Aristophanes( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frogs, in Volume IV, features a contest between the traditional Aeschylus and the modern Euripides, yielding both sparkling comedy and insight on ancient literary taste. In Assemblywomen Athenian women plot to save Athens from male misgovernance with raucously comical results. Here too is Wealth, whose gentle humor and straight forward morality made it the most popular of Aristophanes' plays from classical times to the Renaissance. Jeffrey Henderson is Professor of Classical Studies at Boston University. -- Jacket

Satires and epistles by Horace( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exuberantly mocking the vices and pretensions of his Roman contemporaries, Horace's Satires are stuffed full of comic vignettes, moral insights, and his pervasive humanity. these poems influenced not only contemporaries such as Juvenal, but also English satirists from Ben Jonson to W.H. Auden. In the Epistles, Horace used the form of letters to explore questions of philosophy and how to live a good life. --from publisher description
