The author analyzes not only the writers and their works, but also their social backgrounds and stimuli

Gods and heroes of the Greeks : an introduction to Greek mythology by H. J Rose( Book )

32 editions published between 1957 and 1976 in English and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dionysiaca by Nonnus( Book )

64 editions published between 1940 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt, who lived in the fifth century of our era, composed the last great epic poem of antiquity. The Dionysiaca, in 48 books, has for its chief theme the expedition of Dionysus against the Indians; but the poet contrives to include all the adventures of the god (as well as much other mythological lore) in a narrative which begins with chaos in heaven and ends with the apotheosis of Ariadne's crown. The wild ecstasy inspired by the god is certainly reflected in the poet's style, which is baroque, extravagant, and unrestrained. It seems that Nonnos was in later years converted to Christianity, for in marked contrast to the Dionysiaca, a poem dealing unreservedly with classical myths completely redolent of a pagan outlook, there is extant and ascribed to him a hexameter paraphrase of St. John's Gospel
Greek piety by Martin P Nilsson( Book )

16 editions published between 1948 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Raffaele Pettazzoni and Herbert Jennings Rose, correspondence 1927-1958 : the long friendship between the author and the translator of The all-knowing God, with an appendix of documents by Domenico Accorinti( )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raffaele Pettazzoni (1883-1959), Professor of the History of Religions at the University of Rome and one of the leading historians of religions in the twentieth century, maintained a long correspondence with Herbert Jennings Rose (1883-1961), the gifted Canadian scholar who was Professor of Greek at St Andrews and is best known for his work in the field of ancient religion and folklore. These letters, spanning the years 1927 to 1958, bear witness to the close relationship between the two scholars and focus on two of Pettazzoni's books, both translated by Rose: Essays on the History of Religions (1954) and The All-Knowing God (1956). They also shed light on Pettazzoni's initiative to the foundation of the journal Numen (1954), and reveal Rose's brilliant personality."--Back cover
Ancient Roman religion by H. J Rose( Book )

17 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines of classical literature by H. J Rose( Book )

20 editions published between 1958 and 1968 in English and held by 573 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a manual of classical literature, but a guide for students of English literature who too often come to their difficult and complex subject with little or no knowledge of one of its principal sources. It therefore does not attempt to give a complete account of the Greek and Roman writers, but tries instead to deal with those whose influences, direct or indirect, can be clearly traced in medieval and later authors. The ancients are taken in their chronological order, though this is not necessarily the order in which they became known to, or influenced the Christian world. The book should be of unusual interest to the undergraduate, the general reader and to the literary critic desirous of displaying classical erudition
