Alfred the Great by Eleanor Shipley Duckett( Book )

39 editions published between 1956 and 2001 in English and Japanese and held by 1,662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book recreates the life of the ninth-century English king, scholar, warrior and lawmaker. It has three aims: to do what it may in spreading among us the knowledge of this king who did so much for his England and his world; to place him in his setting -- Saxon, Celtic, and Continental; and to build his story on simple lines, which rest nevertheless upon a foundation suggested by the sources given at its close. - Foreword

The gateway to the Middle Ages by Eleanor Shipley Duckett( Book )

12 editions published between 1938 and 1971 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VOLUME ONE is the story of the struggle to defend Italian lands against the Eastern Goths and the wave of barbarians from the North. Theodoric the Great dreams of a Roman Empire reinvigorated with Gothic blood, while the imprisoned Boethius, last of the Roman philosophers and first of the Scholastics, writes his immortal work of suffering and consolation. VOLUME TWO portrays an age when men lived intensely aware of supernatural forces, and their savage deeds were countered by the civilizing force of Christianity. Gregory of Tours frets for his "little world of Gaul", while Fortunatus writes poetry of love sacred and secular. Here are St. Radegund, the queen who lived as a nun; Gildas, last of the "British Romans"; and St. Alban, Britain's first martyr. VOLUME THREE is a glowing description of monasticism as it developed under such figures as Columban, "the Saint afire with Irish enthusiasm"; St. Benedict, greatest of the monks, who established a pattern of the religious life still in existence; and St. Gregory, greatest of the popes, who more than any other man prepared the See of Rome for its triumphant emergence in the Middle Ages

Hellenistic influence on the Aeneid by Eleanor Shipley Duckett( Book )

22 editions published between 1920 and 2011 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influence of Hellenistic literature upon Vergil is no new subject, for commentators have long since exhausted their efforts in bringing to light every resemblance between the words of Apollonius, Theocritus, or Callimachus, and the language of the Aeneid, Georgics, or Bucolics. It is not, therefore, to actual correspondence of letter that I now direct my attention, nor primarily to the influence of literature upon literature; but rather to correspondence of spirit and manner, to the influence upon Vergil's mind and work of the Hellenistic tradition of life and thought, together with its literary expression. Vergil, as well as other Romans, had shared the inheritance, good or evil, which Roman life had received and was still receiving from every part of the Hellenistic world, Greece and Macedonia, Egypt and Asia. -- Preface
